Decolorization of Azodyes by Marine Actinomycetes

Dr M. ShanmugaPriya


Dyes are used to impart color to materials of which it becomes an integral part of human life. Azodyes accounts for the major produced synthetic dyestuffs because they are extensively used in textile, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, pose a threat for all life forms. The physio-chemical method of industrial effluent treatment does not remove the dyes effectively. Microbial decolourization of Azodyes has gained more attention because of eco-friendly and inexpensive nature. Microbes could decolorize the dyes by both aerobic and anaerobic metabolism. The present study provides a general idea of microbial decolourization of azodyes by different  microrganisms.
