BIODEGRADATION OF SALICYLIC ACID FROM SOIL ISOLATES

Abstract

In this present work of study, 16 different bacterial strains were isolated from various environments. The study showed that 8 isolates were capable of degrading salicylic acid. The most efficient degrader was isolate D1. The BHM media was used for the salicylic acid degradation. The ability of isolate to degrade salicylic acid was tested by scanning the spectrum with UV-Visible spectrophotometer. The isolate D1 showed maximum degradation of salicylic acid in 48 hrs of incubation. The maximum degradation of salicylic acid was observed at pH-7 and temperature at 25ºC and 37ºC. The organism showed efficient degradation when yeast extract was used as nitrogen source. Further increase in the salicylic acid concentration slowed down the rate of degradation.
