Systematic List of UM-BBD Pathways

[Organic Functional Groups] [Alphabetized Pathways] [Search] [BBD Main Menu]

This page contains 215 chemical compounds whose biodegradation pathways are currently included in the UM-BBD.

Compounds are classified primarily on the presence or absence of halogens, nitrogen, phosphorus or sulfur. Those containing more than one of these four elements are classified under the heading of the element with the highest atomic weight. Compounds containing only carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen are classified under the headings "Other Aromatic Compounds" or "Other Aliphatic Compounds" based on the presence or absence of an aromatic ring. Aromatic compounds containing aldehyde or acid groups and hydroxyl groups are included under the "Acids or Aldehydes" subheading, not under the subheading of "Ethers and Phenols". Aromatic compounds containing only hydrogen and carbon are listed under the subheading of "Hydrocarbons". The "Other Aliphatic Compounds" heading includes all other non-aromatic compounds containing only carbon, hydrogen, and possibly oxygen. The "Other Compounds" heading is for compounds that do not fit in any of the other categories. All compounds are listed under only one heading.

All pathways are aerobic unless otherwise indicated. The number of pathways listed in each of the seven categories is indicated in parenthesis after the heading name. An alphabetical list of all pathways and a list of organic functional groups found in UM-BBD compounds are also available.
