Dissolved organic matter derived from biodegradable microplastic promotes photo-aging of coexisting microplastics and alters microbial metabolism
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) leaching from biodegradable microplastics (BMPs) and its characteristics and corresponding environmental implication are rarely investigated. In this study, the main component of DOM leachate from the two BMPs (polyadipate/butylene terephthalate (PBAT)/polycaprolactone (PCL)) was verified by using excitation-emission matrix-parallel factor analysis (EEM-PARAFAC). The PBAT-DOM (PBOM) was aromatized and terrestrial. Comparatively, PCL-DOM (PLOM) had low molecular weight. PBOM contained protein-like components while PLOM contained tryptophan and tyrosine components. Interestingly, both PBOM and PLOM could accelerate the decomposition and oxidation of coexisting polystyrene (PS) under light irradiation. Further, the difference in composition and the properties of BMPs-DOM significantly affected its photochemical activity. The high territoriality and protein-like component of PBOM significantly promoted the generation of O and O, which caused faster disruptions to the backbone of PS. Simultaneously, the microbial community's richness, diversity, and metabolism were obviously improved under the combined pressure of aged PS and BMPs-DOM. This study threw light on the overlooked contribution of DOM derived from BMPs in the aging process of NMPs and their impact on the microbial community and provided a promising strategy for better understanding of combined MPs' fate and environmental risk.
