Abstract

The present study deals with the decolorization of Acid Black 210 by a bioluminescent bacterium, Vibrio harveyi TEMS1, isolated from coastal seawater of Izmir Bay, Turkey. Maximum rate of decolorization of Acid Black 210 was observed when Luria Bertani medium was used. Decolorization of Acid Black 210 was 38.9% and 93.9% at 24 h under shaking and static conditions, respectively. The optimum dye-decolorizing activity of the culture was obtained at 100 ppm initial dye concentration and incubation temperature of 20°C. Vibrio harveyi TEMS1 was also tested for its ability to decolorize four azo dyes (Acid Black 24, Acid Blue 7, Acid Green 20, Acid Yellow 36) in addition to Acid Black 210.
