Abstract The simultaneous removal of six chlorinated hydrocarbons, α- and γ-hexachlorocyclohexane (α- and γ-HCH), dieldrin, heptachlor, aldrin and p,p′-DDT from spiked samples of water and a wastewater by cells of the bacterium Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides immobilized on magnetite was studied. In a contact time of 20 min, levels of heptachlor, aldrin and p,p′-DDT in water were reduced below the level of detection of the electron capture detector and concentrations of α-HCH, γ-HCH and dieldrin were reduced by 29.5, 32.0 and 88.9% respectively. Removal of p,p′-DDT from a spiked wastewater was complete whereas the removals of aldrin, heptachlor, dieldrin, γ-HCH and α-HCH were 92.9, 90.8, 89.9, 30.0 and 32.1% respectively. Sorption of all chlorinated hydrocarbons by the bacterial cells reached equilibrium within 20 min.
