Abstract Five Pseudomonas species were tested for ability to degrade pentachlorophenol (PCP). Pseudomonas aeruginosa completely degraded PCP up to 800 mg/l in 6 days with glucose as co-substrate. With 1000 mg PCP/l, 53\% was degraded. NH4 (+) salts were better at enhancing degradation than organic nitrogen sources and shake-cultures promoted PCP degradation compared with surface cultures. Degradation was maximal at pH 7.6 to 8.0 and at 30 to 37°C. Only PCP induced enzymes that degraded PCP and chloramphenicol inhibited this process. The PCP was degraded to CO2, with release of Cl(-).
