Abstract

Mn-requirement for biobleaching by various white rot fungi, Trametes versicolor, Phanerochaete sordida, Phlebia radiata, Stereum hirsutum and Bjerkandera sp. strain BOS55, was analyzed. All the strains bleached kraft pulp with the Mn-containing medium. In Mn-deficient conditions, bleaching was only observed with Bjerkandera sp. strain BOS55, and this only occurred in the presence of organic acids.
