Strain PA 01, identified as Pedomicrobium sp., was isolated on the basis of the capability to remove volatile sulfur containing fragments, including H2S, from carboxythiophene and the heterocyclic sulfurated molecules: benzothiofene, thianthrene, thiophene, thiophenecarboxyaldehyde and dibenzothiophene. The strain PA 01 was selected for its desulfurating capability on synthetic media in different culture conditions and atmosphere composition. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
