Bioremediation of organic pollutants and heavy metals by use of microorganisms represents a safe, inexpensive, and environmentally-friendly concept in modern environmental engineering. During the last three decades intense efforts have been made by microbiologists and environmental engineers in the isolation and characterization of microorganisms capable of degradation, transformation and detoxification of recalcitrant chemical compounds of environmental concern: (polyhalogenated) dibenzo-p-dioxins, dibenzofurans, and diphenyl ethers. Special emphasis is placed on the potential of molecular biology techniques to improve presently available biocatalysts.
Aerobic degradation by bacteria of dibenzo-p-dioxins, dibenzofurans, diphenyl ethers and their halogenated derivatives * Anaerobic biotransformation of dioxin-like compounds * Biodegradation of dioxin and dioxin-like compounds by white-rot fungi * Molecular genetics of bacterial dioxin degradation * Biotransformation of dioxin-like compounds by eukaryotic cells * Bioavailability of dioxin-like compounds for microbial degradation * Structure-biodegradability relationships for chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans * Biodegradation of diaryl ether pesticides.
