Rhizosphere/Soil Microorganisms in the Phytoremediation of Biphenyl and Dioxane
Biphenyl and dioxane biodegradation by poplar and willow rhizosphere microorganisms was studied in a phytoremediation test-plot contaminated with biphenyl and dioxane. A dioxane-degrading consortium enriched from the ...
SIMULTANEOUS DEGRADATION OF TOXIC AND VOLATILE SUBSTRATES BY TWO PHASE PARTITIONING BIOREACTOR SYSTEMS: PERFORMANCE CHARACTERIZATION AND RATIONAL POLYMER SELECTION
The degradation of toxic and volatile contaminants in aqueous streams is considered a challenge using conventional bioremediation strategies. At moderate concentrations, toxic contaminants induce microbial inhibition, which ...
Enzyme Degradable Networks Prepared from a Poly(trimethylene Carbonate)-Peptide Biohybrid
The main objective of this thesis was to develop a biohybrid network with appropriate mechanical properties for a range of soft connective tissue engineering applications that could be degraded solely by the action of the ...
