Effects of different parameters on the removal of atrazine in a water environment by Aspergillus oryzae biosorption
J Pestic Sci. 2021 May 20;46(2):214-221. doi: 10.1584/jpestics.D20-043.
Atrazine is the most extensively used herbicide in the agricultural and forestry sectors. Nevertheless, along with the increasing usage amount of Atrazine, its harm exposed gradually, the main problem is its residues in the environment. Microbial adsorption may effectively reduce the pollution caused by atrazine residue in the environment. In this study, a strain of fungi with the function of adsorbing atrazine was selected using microbial screening technology. According to its phenotypic characteristics and 18S rDNA gene sequencing, this strain was of the species genus Aspergillus and was named ECUST-TXZC2018. By studying the dynamic adsorption effect of this strain on atrazine, we found that this strain adsorbed atrazine after 36 hr at pH=5-7, and 20-30°C with more than 70% adsorption. These results demonstrated that ECUST-TXZC2018 had potential application ability to control atrazine residue pollution through the biosorption function.
