Abstract:

Naphthalene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) consisting of a pair of benzene ring and is considered as priority pollutants among 16 PAHs by US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA, 1994, 2004) is highly toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic. Due to its lipophilic property it enters the ecosystem and polluted the environment. A Bacterial strain isolated from oil polluted site of Guwahati Oil Refinery was identified as Staphylococcus pasteuri RD2, based on 16SrDNA sequences and phylogenetic analysis. The bacterial strain was able to degrade naphthalene in culture broth in to a number of its transformation products were monitored through FT-IR and GC-MS. Detection of degraded products in the culture broth such as1-cyclohexane-1-carboxylic, 1,2-cyclohexanedicarboxyldehyde, ethylhexyl salicylate, phthalic acid, acetic acid, oxalic acid, propanoic acid, 2-ethyl hexyl salicyclic acid and 1,2-cyclohexanedicarboxyldehyde suggested the degradation of naphthalene by bacterial strain Staphylococcus pasteuri RD2.
