|Title:||Decolourization and degradation of C.I.Reactive Red 195 by <i>Georgenia</i> sp.CC-NMPT-T3|
Reactive Red 195
2’-2’ Azinobis-(3-ethylbenthiazoline 6 sulphonate)
|Abstract:||Azo dye Reactive Red 195 was selected for decolourization and degradation studies by<i> Georgenia sp.CC-NMPT-T3</i>. Optimization of parameters for dye decolourization was studied under static anoxic condition. Under optimized condition decolourization of Reactive Red 195 by<i> Georgenia sp.CC-NMPT-T3</i> was found to be 95.93 % at 50 mg/L within five hours in static anoxic condition. The optimum <i>p</i>H and temperature for the decolourization was 7.0 and 40 °C respectively. The biodegradation was monitored by UV-Vis, and TLC and HPLC. Toxicity study demonstrated no toxicity of the biodegraded product. The results suggest that the isolated organism<i> Georgenia sp.CC-NMPT-T3</i> as a useful tool to treat wastewater containing reactive dyes.|
