Novosphingobium is a genus of Gram-negative bacteria that includes N. taihuense, which can degrade aromatic compounds such as phenol, aniline, nitrobenzene and phenanthrene.[2] The species N. aromativorans, which was first found in Ulsan Bay, similarly degrades aromatic molecules of two to five rings.[3]
