Reductive dechlorination of carbon tetrachloride by bioreduction of nontronite.


PMID 28402894

Abstract

Reductive dechlorination of carbon tetrachloride (CT) was investigated during bioreduction of iron-containing clay mineral (i.e., nontronite) by iron-reducing bacteria (Shewanella putrefaciens CN32 (CN32)). In the absence of CT, the production of Fe(II) significantly increased in nontronite suspension with CN32 in 124 d (11.1% of Fe(III) reduction), resulting in formation of new secondary Fe(II) mineral phase (i.e., vivianite (Fe
