- It was examined the substrate interactions of benzene (B), tolulene (T), ethylbenzene (E), xylene (X), and methyl tert-butyl ether (M) in binary, ternary, quaternary, and quinary mixtures by Rhodococcus sp. EH831 that could aerobically degrade all of five single components. The specific degradation rates (SDRs) of B, T, E, X, and M were 234, 913, 131, 184 and 139 μmol g-dry cell weight (DCW)-1 h-1, respectively. In binary, ternary, quaternary, and quinary mixtures of them, ethylbenzene was the strongest inhibitor for the other substrates, and methyl tert-butyl ether was the weakest inhibitor. Interestingly, no degradation of benzene and methyl tert-butyl ether was found in the coexistence of ethylbenzene. The degradation of benzene followed only after toluene became exhausted when both was present. Ethylbenzene was least inhibited by methyl tert-butyl ether and most inhibited by toluene. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
