Isolation and characterization of new triethylamine and ethyl acrylate degrading bacteria

Rita Issa Numeir Alayoub
In this study new bacteria were isolated that degrade triethylamine and ethyl acrylate. These two common industrial waste products are extremely annoying due to their exceedingly bad odour. Numerous environmental samples were collected from various sources for the screening process. Several strains were isolated and the two bacterial strains demonstrating the most efficient degradation of each odorous compound were chosen for further analysis in this study: RA1 and RA2 for triethylamine; 2C and 2Cbei for...
