Anaerobic degradation of chlorophenols and chlorobenzoates is usually performed by complex methanogenic or sulfidogenic microbial consortia and in the presence of additional carbon sources. Phenol was the first antiseptic, but chlorophenols possess far higher antimicrobial activity and acidity than phenol. Chlorinated phenols were subsequently developed as biocidal agents, especially di- and trichlorophenol and, above all, PCP. The fully substituted PCP (Fig. 12) is very recalcitrant, has limited aqueous solubility (except in alkali solution, where it forms a soluble s o l u m salt), and is persistent in the environment.

Much of Siberia is swamp during summer, and this makes for the most challenging environment on earth in which to build an oil industry. The good news is that it is estimated that about one-quarter of the world’s registered engineers are Russian, and Russia has an enormously capable scientific infrastructure. Russia has an emerging bioremediation industry, and the development of oil and gas wealth has recently seen large investments, domestic and foreign, into the Russian oil fields. The oil spill at Usinsk in the Komi Republic in 1994 was the largest pipeline spill on record.
