Maximum H2 in cultures amended with chloral hydrate or trichloroethanol, and trichloroacetic acid or trichloroethylene

Culture Ch/Tce TCA/TCE
  • Data are means (range) of maximum H2 measurements ([alkyl halide] = 1–10 mM) normalised to mean control culture H2 for each experiment: CH4 = methanogneic cultures (n=16), non-CH4 = non-methanogenic cultures (n=12). Ch, chloral hydrate; Tce, trichloroethanol; TCA, trichloroacetic acid; TCE, trichloroethylene.
