Abstract:
Detection of specific metabolites formed during anaerobic biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons is of great importance to understand the mechanisms involved, to screen for functional microbes, and to monitor in-situ microbial activities. This paper focus on recent progress in metabolites formed during anaerobic biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons. Distinct biochemical activation strategies include dehydrogenation and hydroxylation, fumarate addition and carboxylation. Among them, fumarate addition yielding succinic acid derivatives is likely the most widespread strategy in different microbial phylotypes. Metabolites formed are classified as gaseous, inorganic ions and organic acids. Their analytical methods, especially for transient and low concentrations of organic acids, are summarized. Case studies are presented to emphasize the application of specific metabolites as potential biomarkers, and the prospects for future research on the detection and characterization of signature metabolites resulting from the anaerobic degradation of petroleum hydrocarbons are proposed.
