  • Maximal enzyme activity occurred at pH 9.0 and 60 degrees C. The enzymatic reaction product of the triphenylmethane dye crystal violet was identified as its leuco form by UV-visible spectral changes and thin-layer chromatography [2].
  • The TPM dye was degraded to simple metabolic intermediates in the bioreactor with 94% decolorization at a flow rate of 4 ml h(-1) [25].
