anthraquinone dyes

Biodegradation of Synthetic Dyes Bacteria of the Genus Azospirillum

Synthetic dyes are the largest class of chemicals that have found their commercial use in various industries. The most used are azo and anthraquinone dyes. However, most of them are not only toxic, carcinogenic, and mutagenic, but also resistant to biological destruction. The aim of the work was the screening of azospirillum strains according to their ability to biodegrade azo dyes and anthraquinone dyes.
