 Abstract
The fatty acid composition of thiocyanate utilizing Bacillus brevis isolated from carbonization wastewater was determined by Gas Chromatography and the results were analyzed. In addition to the saturated and unsaturated straight chain fatty acids this B. brevis strain contained a hydroxy fatty acid. The hydroxy fatty acids in general are shown to be interesting chemotaxonomic markers of bacteria. Cyclopropane fatty acids are totally absent in this strain. A comparison of the fatty acid composition of this strain with B-33 and B-34 strains of Bacillus brevis shows that there are deviations among these strains. The deviation in Bacillus brevis could be due to the stress effect of thiocyanate. This result supports that fatty acid synthesis depends highly on the environment.
