Abstract

The degradation of cyanide under anaerobic conditions in the presence of a growing culture of a strain of Klebsiella planticola has been shown to be due to a chemical process dependent upon the presence of a reducing sugar in the medium. The conversion of cyanide to ammonia was independent of any biological factors under these conditions.
