Abstract: This study presents decolorization of textile azo dye, Orange II, by white rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium. Orange II (85%) was removed in 7 days (optimum decolorization on 5th day at 28-30°C and pH 5.0) in liquid cultures under shaking aerobic conditions using P. chrysosporium. Higher dye concentration in simulated dye showed inhibitory effects on decolorization. Decolorization ability of fungus was correlated to lignolytic enzyme activity.
