|Title:||Decolorization of textile dyes by <i>Aspergillus tamarii</i>, mixed fungal culture and <i>Penicillium purpurogenum</i>|
|Abstract:||This study describes degradation ability of <i>Aspergillus tamarii</i>, mixed fungal culture (<i>Trichoderma </i>sp., and <i>A. flavus</i>) and <i>Penicillium purpurogenum </i>on various synthetic dyes. <i>A. tamarii </i>decolorized (> 90%) of coomassie brilliant blue (CBB), bromophenol blue (BPB), and malachite green (MG) dyes. Mixed fungal culture decolorized: CBB, 74; BPB, 78; and MG, 45%. <i>P. purpurogenum </i>decolorized: CBB, 91; BPB, 92; and MG, 52%. Dye decolorization was achieved by metabolism rather than by adsorption. Isolated fungal strains could effectively be used in development of alternative and eco-friendly method for removal and degradation of textile dyes.|
