The purpose of this research was to remove the chlorpyrifos exposed to liquid media by the Aspergillus fumigatus fungi. Chlorpyrifos is a toxic organophosphate insecticide with a molecular formula of C9H11Cl3NO3PS, while A. fumigatus was cultivated in potato dextrose agar (PDA) media, incubated at the a temperature of 37oC, with pH of 7 in 7 days. Furthermore, the research was initiated by variating the concentration of the microorganism at 0.5%, 1.0%, and 1.5%, impacting biodegradation into the Erlenmeyer, containing the media (PDB), pH 7, and 10% chlorpyrifos, to determine the best removal efficiency. In addition, the Erlenmeyer was place at the shaker incubator, and a rotation speed of about 180 rpm, with temperature of 25oC was maintained. Sampling was conducted every day in 5 days, and also on the 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th day, in order to determine the contact timing needed to generate highest efficiency, using Gas-Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) method. Furthermore, optimal removal was up to 99.65%, with the 1.5% A. fumigatus being exposed for 9 days in the liquid media. This research, therefore, shows the microorganism to impact degradation, as well as the potential to protect waters of environmental pollution against the impact of organophosphate pesticide.
