In the control soil, apart from Lambdacyhalothrin the various metabolites obtained were Isopropyl benzene, 2-ethyl-1,3-dimethyl benzene, 1,2,3,4-tetra methyl5-methylene 1,3-cyclopentadiene, 4- methyl benzoic acid pentafluoro phenyl ester, 1 methyl-4- (1-methyl ethyl)- cyclohexane (Fig 1, table 2).Lambdacyhalothrin residue also was persistence in Bacillus cereus inoculated soil containing 500 ppm Lambdacyhalothrin.
On inoculation with Bacillus cereus in 25,000 ppm of profenofos added soil, the resultant metabolites were Isopropyl benzene, n- propyl benzene, 1-ethyl-2-methyl benzene, 1,2,4-trimethyl benzene, 1,2,3 Tri methyl benzene, 4-ethyl-1, 2-dimethyl benzene, 2- isopropyl benzaldehyde, 4 ethyl 1,2-dimethyl benzene and 4-bromo-2 chloro phenol (fig 2a,2b).
