Volume 4, Issue 3 , July 2016, , Pages 121-128

  Background: Atrazine is a widely used herbicide. The increasing salinity of many water resources has had a negative effect on atrazine biodegradation. The aim of this study was to isolate atrazine degrading bacteria in semi-salinity media. Methods: Nine selected bacterial species were cultivated on ...  Read More

Volume 2, Issue 3 , July 2014, , Pages 113-124

  Background: Among Alkanes, N-Alkanes with medium chain have been identified as the most important contaminants of the soil. N-hexadecane (C16H34) with low solubility in water also belongs to this group and has been used by many researchers as a model contaminant. The present study aimed to investigate ...  Read More
