Overview

  • Product name
    Dibenzothiophene
  • Description
    Model compound in biodegradation studies
  • Alternative names
    • DBT
    • Diphenylene sulfide
  • Biological description

    A model compound for organic sulfur in fossil fuels, used to investigate the effect of heavy sulfur compounds on the percentage of sulfur in gasoline range during the Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) process. Biodesulfurization of dibenzothiophene by selective cleavage of carbon sulphur bonds by a thermophilic bacterium Bacillus subtilis WU-S2B has been reported.

  • Handling

    Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
