Extensive use and inadequate disposal of chloroethenes have led to prevalent groundwater contamination worldwide. The occurrence of the lesser chlorinated ethenes [i.e. vinyl chloride (VC) and cis-1,2-dichloroethene (cDCE)] in groundwater is primarily a consequence of incomplete anaerobic reductive dechlorination of...

Geobacter lovleyi is a unique member of the Geobacteraceae because strains of this species share the ability to couple tetrachloroethene (PCE) reductive dechlorination to cis-1,2-dichloroethene (cis-DCE) with energy conservation and growth (i.e., organohalide respiration). Strain SZ also reduces U(VI) to...

Highly functionalised benzofurans have been prepared from ortho-hydroxyphenones and 1,1-dichloroethylene. The key intermediate, a chloromethylene furan, smoothly rearranged into the corresponding benzofuran carbaldehyde under acidic conditions. Some mechanistic investigations have been performed and several biologically active benzofurans have been synthesised.

Abiotic and biotic reductive dechlorination with chlorinated ethene dense non-aqueous-phase liquid (DNAPL) source zones can lead to significant fluxes of complete and incomplete transformation products. Accurate assessment of in situ rates of transformation and the potential for product sequestration requires...

Quinone moieties in humic substances have previously been shown to serve as extracellular electron acceptors in different metabolic pathways. Here we show that the humic acid analogue antraquinone-2,6-disulfonate (AQDS) can also serve as an electron donor in the microbial reductive...
