Description:Addressing the persistent environmental threat of organic chemicals with a fresh approach to degradation and tranformation processes, this book examines a wide range of compounds as well as both abiotic and microbiological reactions mediated by microorganisms. It emphasizes the pathways used and the broad classes of enzymes that are involved. The book provides an overview of experimental procedures with detailed coverage of the organic compounds that are considered to be xenobiotics. The text also contains an extensive set of literature references and numerous illustrative figures. Degradation and Transformation of Organic Chemicals is a comprehensive resource for researchers in the field.
