Several studies have shown that plant-soil systems were capable of degrading chlorinated biphenyls, with the resulting accumulation of breakdown products in both the plants and the soil. However, since these studies were performed under field conditions, it is not certain what portion of the degradation was due to plant metabolism and what portion to that of soil microbes which have been demonstrated in pure culture to degrade chlorinated biphenyls. This question is addressed in the present research by determining the metabolism of 2-chlorobiphenyl provided aseptically to axenic cultures of Paul's Scarlet rose.
