versatile Aromatic Compound degrading capacity and microdiversity of thauera strains isolated from a coking wastewater treatment bioreactorJournal of Industrial Microbiology & Biotechnology, 2010Co-Authors: Xiaojun Zhang, Huihui Zhong, Liping ZhaoAbstract:
Bacteria of the Thauera genus have been described as important Aromatic Compound degraders and have attracted increased attention. In this study, three Thauera strains (Q4, Q20-C, and 3–35) were isolated from a coking wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) with a high abundance of Thauera. The 16S rRNA, nitrite reductase, and phenol hydroxylase (LmPH) genes and pollutant-degrading capacity of these strains were characterized and compared. Their 16S rRNA gene sequences were identical, but the genomic structures differed, as demonstrated by distinct enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensus sequence PCR profiles with a similarity of less than 0.65. The analysis of degradation of coking wastewater by these strains showed that most of the main organic pollutants—phenol, methylphenol, and indole, but not quinoline—were degraded under aerobic conditions. These strains contained different LmPHs genes and showed different phenol degradation rates (Q4 > 3–35 > Q20-C). The presence of a microdiversity of Thauera spp. implies the existence of various finely differentiated niches in the industrial WWTP. The capacity of the Thauera strains to degrade a wide spectrum of Aromatic Compounds suggests their potential in bioremediation applications targeting Aromatic pollutant-containing wastewater.

A wide range kinetic modeling study of pyrolysis and oxidation of benzeneCombustion and Flame, 2013Co-Authors: Chiara Saggese, Alessio Frassoldati, Alberto Cuoci, Tiziano Faravelli, Eliseo RanziAbstract:
The aim of this work is to collect and review the vast amount of experimental data reported in recent years on benzene pyrolysis and oxidation and to analyze them by using and refining a detailed kinetic mechanism, thereby identifying a sensitive and crucial portion of the mechanism itself. Benzene is the first Aromatic Compound, a relevant intermediate of several combustion processes and also a key precursor to soot formation. The emphasis here is on high pressure pyrolysis experiments, ignition delay times in shock tubes, premixed flames as well as low temperature reactions with recombination and propagation reactions of cyclopentadienyl and phenoxy radicals playing a significant role. This is the first time the same kinetic model of benzene pyrolysis and oxidation has been compared with such a wide collection of experimental measurements. © 2013 The Combustion Institute.

potential driven molecular tiling of a charged polycyclic Aromatic CompoundChemical Communications, 2014Co-Authors: Oleksandr Ivasenko, Stijn F L Mertens, Kunal S Mali, Dongqing Wu, Xinliang Feng, Klaus Mullen, S De FeyterAbstract:
Using in situ electrochemical scanning tunnelling microscopy (EC-STM), we demonstrate fully reversible tuning of molecular tiling between self-assembled structures with supramolecular motifs containing 2, 3, 4, 6 or 7 tectons. The structures can be explained by electrocompression of the cationic adlayer at the solid–liquid interface.
