Abstract

Biotransformation and biodegradation of chemical compounds are the major processes which determine the fate of organic compounds in aquatic andterrestrial environments. An understanding of biodegradation mechanisms and identification of factors which limit the biodegradation rates is desirable for the development of bioremediation technologies suitable for clean-up of contaminated soil and water. This chapter will overview some of the approaches presently available for study of structure-biodegradability relationships. Practical examples from statistical design of optimal testing sets of compounds, and structure-biodegradability analysis of aerobic and anaerobic degradation of chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans will be provided.
