Abstract

Enzymatic oxidative degradation of EDTA and EDTA complexes with metals has been investigated using immobilized cells of Chelativorans oligotrophicus LPM-4. A polarographic method, which makes it possible to register oxygen consumption by cells, has been used. For the first time, it has been indicated that the Cd-EDTA and Ni-EDTA complexes undergo degradation by the bacteria under study.
