By Lorenz Adrian,Frank E. Löffler

This booklet summarizes the present country of data pertaining to micro organism that use halogenated natural compounds as breathing electron acceptors. the invention of organohalide-respiring micro organism has multiplied the variety of electron acceptors used for power conservation, and serves as a chief instance of ways clinical discoveries are allowing cutting edge engineering options that experience reworked remediation perform. person chapters supply in-depth history details at the discovery, isolation, phylogeny, biochemistry, genomic positive factors, and ecology of person organohalide-respiring genera, together with Dehalococcoides, Dehalogenimonas, Dehalobacter, Desulfitobacterium and Sulfurospirillum, in addition to organohalide-respiring participants of the Deltaproteobacteria. The publication introduces readers to the interesting biology of organohalide-respiring micro organism, delivering a helpful source for college kids, engineers and practitioners alike.
