trichlorobenzene

[trī¦klȯr·ō′ben‚zēn]
(organic chemistry)
C6H3Cl3 Either of two toxic compounds: 1,2,3-trichlorobenzene forms white crystals, soluble in ether, insoluble in water, boiling at 221°C, and is used as a chemical intermediate; 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene is a combustible, colorless liquid, soluble in most organic solvents and oils, insoluble in water, boiling at 213°C, and is used as a solvent and in dielectric fluids, synthetic transformer oils, lubricants, and insecticides.

The reason is that microbes can degrade with glucose as substrate [11] and also with 1,2,4trichlorobenzene as substrate, while low concentrations of 1.2.4- trichlorobenzene did not achieve its toxicity tolerance; by adding glucose and the increase in the number of microorganisms, it improved microbial activity and the degradation effect.
