The aerobic dechlorination of 4-chlorobiphenyl and of Aroclor 1221 by Pseudomonas sp. CPE1 strain was enhanced by the presence of hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin in the medium. The best dechlorination results were obtained when 4-chlorobiphenyl or Aroclor 1221 and the cyclodextrin were used at the molar ratios 1:1 and 1:1.5. This agent can be adopted to enhance the efficiency of PCB degradation tests.
