Bioremediation Of Chlorinated Toxic Chemicals Using Plant: Microbial Interactions

Tassew Mekonnen Mekuria
The impact of chlorinated organo-chemicals on human health and the environment has received wide attention because of their long geochemical half-lives and ecotoxic nature. Due to the presence of highly electro-negative Cl atoms, the compounds become electron deficient in nature and chemically inactive in reaction. As a result, such compounds gain water insolubility and are sequestered in the soil. In general, biodegradation of chlorinated organo-chemicals is a two step process: (i) dechlorination, mainly operated by...
