To break the contradiction between aniline and nitrogen metabolism in activated sludge reactor by influencing microbial interspecific communication, Auto-inducer C6-HSL and 3-oxo-C8-HSL were selected in this study to interfere with aniline degradation system. The two Auto-inducers enhanced the aniline degradation rate and ammonia removal efficiency of the systems, especially C6-HSL. Meanwhile, the main ammonia removal way was assimilation. Exogenous Auto-inducer effectively stabilized the sludge structure and activity from the destruction of aniline, and promoted EPS secretion. Microbial diversity analysis showed that most of functional microflora of seed sludge gradually deactivated with the operation of the reactor, while RhodococcusLeucobacterg_norank_f_Saprospiraceae proliferated wildly under the action of Auto-inducer. Additionally, the interspecific relationship also demonstrated a different trend. Exogenous Auto-inducer was proved to exert positive effects on aniline degradation system to a certain extent, providing new insights in the field of aniline wastewater bio-degradation.
