I am trying to determine the ability of my bacterial consortium to utilize dibenzothiophene as a carbon source.
After 1 month of culture, I will determine the remaining dibenzothiophene from my 10 ml culture.
Ive read from a certain journal that extraction was done using ethyl acetate. Another journal however used dichloromethane but did not give explanation in the process of extraction.
If I will use ethyl acetate for example, I will add equal volume of it to my bacterial culture.. Could you help me what should be done next?
