Abstract: In the present study, an adapted bacterium PF-11 with high 1,3-dichlorobenzene degradation capability was isolated from town-gas industrial effluent through continuous introducing of N-methyl-N′-nitro-N-nitrosoquanidine (NTG). In suitable condition, a degradation rate of 32mg L-1d-1 of 1,3-dichlorobenzene was obtained by strain PF-11 with effective chlorion release. Strain PF-11 was tentatively identified as gram-positive Bacillus cereus. The substrate specificity of the strain PF-11 was relatively low, and the degradation rate for different chlorobenzenes was in the order of monochlorobenzene > 1,3-dichlorobenzene > 1,2-dichlorobenzene. Initial oxidation step was molecular oxygen attacking chlorobenzene ring catalyzed by dioxygenase.
