Microbial cultures, capable of anaerobic hydrocarbon degradation were obtained from the anaerobic marine sediments in San Diego Bay Paleta Creek sediments Using n-alkanes from C6 to C12, alkyl-benzenes toluene, ethylbenzene, 0-, m-, and p-xylene isomers, and alkyl-cycloalkanes ethyl cyclopentane, in conjunction with C13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry some of the hydrocarbon compounds were labeled with either 2H and C13-nuclei, anaerobic biodegradation reaction pathways and metabolite structures were identified and characterized.
