Continuing to explore the relationship between the chemistry of metals and life processes, this volume in the "Metal Ions in Biological Systems" series examines the degradation of environmental pollutants by micro-organisms. It covers the action of micro-organisms and metalloenzymes on lignin, tannins, hemicelluloses, cellulose and aromatic compounds, as well as on halogenated aromatics and aliphatics; analyzes mechanistic aspects; considers the role of metalloproteases in biotechnology and wastewater sludge treatment; and describes the metal-dependent conversion of inorganic nitrogen and sulfur compounds.

General strategies in the biodegradation of pollutants
oxidation of aromatic pollutants by lignin-degrading fungi and their extracellular peroxidases
biodegradation of tannins
aerobic biodegradation of aromatic hydrocarbons by bacteria
degradation of halogenated aromatics by actinomycetes, Bruno Winter and Wolfgang Zimmermann
enzymes catalyzing oxidative coupling reactions of
