Degradation of Commercial Detergent Products by Microbial Populations of the Lagos Lagoon
The biodegradability potentials of three detergent products with the trade names Omo, Teepol and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) by the native bacteria of the Lagos lagoon was carried out using the lagoon die-away method. ...
Occurrence and Distribution of Sulphate-Reducing Bacteria in a Polluted Lagoon
(The faculty press, Cambridge, 1991-01)
The presence and distribution of sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) in the sediment and water from four strategic points on the Lagos Lagoon were assessed using the most probable number technique. All the samples were ...
Effect of Viscosity on the biodegradability of Automotive Lubricating Oils
(Butterworth- Heinemann Limited, 1991-08)
Hydrocarbon-utilizing bacteria were isolated by enrichment from water samples collected from the Lagos lagoon and identified as species of Achromobacter, Acinetobacter, Alcaligenes, Arthrobacter, Bacillus, Flavobacterium, ...
Microbial Degradation of Four Nigerian Crude Oils in an Estuarine Microcosm.
Four Nigerian crude oils (Bonny Light, Bonny Medium, Escravos Light and Forcados Blend) that differ substantially in fractional composition were exposed to the Lagos Lagoon waters in microcosm experiments with oil-impregnated ...
Biodegradation of hydrocarbons in the presence of nickel and cobal
(Wiley-Vch Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim., 2013-11)
The Degradation of I-Phenylalkanes by an Oil-Degrading Strain of Alinetobacter Iwoffi
An oil-degrading bacterium identified as Acinetobacter lwoffi was isolated by elective culture on North Sea Forties crude oil from an activated sludge sample. It grew on a wide range of n-alkanes (C12 – C28) and 1 ...
Pyrene-Degrading Potentials of Pseudomonas Species Isolated from Polluted Soils.
(Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2007, 2008-07-04)
Three Pseudomonas species isolated from oil polluted soil in Lagos, Nigeria were studied for their pyrene degradation potentials. These isolates exhibited broad substrate specificities for hydrocarbon substrates including ...
Microbial Degradation of Petroleum Hydrocarbons in a Polluted Tropical Stream.
Crude oil degradation was observed in water samples from three sites along the course of a polluted stream in Lagos, Nigeria. Consistent increase and decrease in the total viable counts (TVCs) of indigenous organisms ...
Assessment of bacterial degradation of lignocellulosic residues (sawdust) in a tropical estuarine microcosm using improvised floating raft equipment
In situ and laboratory studies were carried out to determine the ability of bacterial strains isolated from a tropical lagoon to degrade lignin and carbohydrate components of sawdust, with a view to abating the impact of ...
