Triazophos is one of the most widely used organophosphorus insecticides usually detectable in the environment. A bacterial strain, Diaphorobacter sp. TPD-1, capable of using triazophos and its intermediate, 1-phenyl-3-hydroxy-1,2,4-triazole (PHT), as its sole carbon sources for growth was isolated from a triazophos-contaminated soil in China. This strain could completely degrade 50 mg l(-1) triazophos and PHT to non-detectable level in 24 and 56 h, respectively. During PHT degradation, three metabolites were detected and identified based on tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) analysis. Using this information, a biochemical degradation pathway of triazophos by Diaphorobacter sp. TPD-1 was proposed. The first step involved in the degradation of triazophos is the hydrolysis of the P-O ester bond of triazophos to form PHT and o,o-diethyl phosphorothioic acid, then the triazol ring of PHT is subsequently cleaved to form (E)-1-formyl-2-phenyldiazene. Subsequently, (E)-1-formyl-2-phenyldiazene is transformed to 2-phenylhydrazinecarboxylic acid by adding one molecular of H(2)O. Finally, the carboxyl group of 2-phenylhydrazinecarboxylic acid is decarboxylated to form phenylhydrazine.
