Abstract

Two bacterial cultures capable of degrading naphthalene and containing high naphthalene-dioxygenase enzyme specific activity were isolated. Preliminary investigations suggest that this enzyme is induced, needs oxygen, and possesses a narrow range of conditions for optimum performance. These bacteria have potential fbr use in developing biosensor system through immobilization on suitable support. The use of such systems in the detection of naphthalene in wastewater and for pollution monitoring is discussed. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd.
