Isolation, Characterization and Anthracene Mineralization by Bacillus Cereus From Petroleum Oil Depot Soil

Mr. Rahul L. Meshram, Dr. Satish R. Wate

Abstract :

Bacillus cereus strain, isolated from contaminated soil from IOCL depot Khapri, Nagpur, MS, India. Isolated species decomposes upto 1000 ppm of anthracene tried so far. Effects of environmental factors pH, tem– perature and substrate concentration over mineralization also studied. Temperature of 350C, substrate concentration 500 ppm & 7.5 pH are optimum environmental conditions studied so far in laboratory for mineralization. 2,3 dihydroxynaptha–lene, catechol, phthalate were reported as an intermediates, from HPLC analysis & possible mineralization pathway for anthracene through these intermediates were suggested.
