Abstract:

Environmental pollution has been recognized as one of the major problems of the modern world. The increasing demand for water and the dwindling supply has made the treatment and reuse of industrial effluents as an attractive option. 7 bacterial isolates, designated as IAK-1 to IAK-7 were found to be effective in decolorizing Malachite Green. The superior strain with the highest decolorization efficiency was identified as Chromohalobacter sp. Strain IAK-7. Dye decolorization of Malachite Green was found to be maximized after 24 h of incubation. Increase in dye concentration was found to be inversely proportional to the decolorization of Malachite Green. HPLC and FTIR analysis revealed the degradation of the parental dye molecule.
