Study on quinoline biodegradation kinetics by pure cultures of B. P. sp. . kinetics constants of quinoline degradation were obtained. The effects of other substrates, for example, phenol, pyridine, nitrite, nitrate, ammonia and glucose ,on the quinoline biotransformation by B. P. sp. were investigated. The effects of phenol and pyridine are inhibitive. Those of nitrate and glucose are enhanced.

Key words: Quinoline, Biodegradation, Kinetics, Mixed substrates, Inhibition, Activation
