A new cell immobilization method based on the replacement of KCl by KCl+chitosan as the gelling agent was developed. The experimental results showed that through addition of chitosan into gelling agent, the mechanical strength and the thermal stability of the carrageenan gel were greatly improved. The new immobilization method was used to entrap a chlorophenol degrading microorganism. The immobilized microbial cells were applied for chlorophenol biodegradation. The experiments demonstrated that immobilized cells exhibit a higher bioactivity in the degradation of chlorophenol than free cells.
