Biodegradation of dimethylamine using Pseudomonas aeruginosa
The degradation of different concentrations of Dimethylamine (DMA) (0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2 mM) was attempted employing the bacterial strain Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from tannery effluent contaminated site. The isolated strain exhibited efficient degradation of DMA which was assessed by studying the factors, pH, turbidity of the medium, CO2 and ammonia released during the degradation experiment. The degradation of DMA was further confirmed by HPLC analysis. The results of the experiment were evaluated statistically using two way ANOVA.
