Of the nine actinomycete strains screened for their ability to grow on isomeric chlorobenzoates (Cba), Corynebacterium liquefaciens, a sewage isolate, was able to maximally metabolize 3.2 mM 2- and 3-Cba in presence of 0.25mM glucose as co-substrate. The degradation of 2-Cba and 3-Cba was 70.3% and 79.37% (w/v), respectively, under optimized conditions.
