Abstract The microbial degradation and sorption of carbaryl, malathion, butoxyethyl ester of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-DBE), methoxychlor, atrazine, diazinon, captan, parathion, and toxaphene were investigated. Malathion and 2,4-DBE were found to undergo transformation readily in both bacterial and fungal cultures. Degradation of malathion and 2,4-DBE at low concentrations (< 1mg/l) in batch cultures of bacteria followed second-order kinetics as predicted by the Michaelis-Menten theory. A single isomer, beta-monoacid of malathion, was the primary metabolite in transformation of malathion by both bacterial and fungal populations. The major metabolite found in 2,4-DBE studies was 2,4-D. Carbaryl underwent chemical hydrolysis to alpha-naphthal in both heterogeneous bacterial cultures and uninoculated controls. In the cultures alpha-naphthol was metabolized to 1,4-naphthoquinone and two unidentified compounds. Bacterial degradation of methoxychlor was slower than bacterial degradation of malathion or 2,4-DBE. The insecticide was metabolized to methoxychlor-DDE. Rapid and extensive sorption of pesticides to fungi, bacteria, and algae was observed with methoxychlor and toxaphene, but with any of the other pesticides investigated.
