Abstract: The main objective of this study was to characterize short-chain hydrocarbons produced by arthrobacter Nitroguajacolius strain IHBB9963 isolated from Shule river soil in Gansu province-China. Results showed that in a total of 6strains that grown well on CMC-Agar medium with colony diameter ranged from3mm-4mm only 1strain was of greater hydrocarbons production ability. Chemical properties of extracted biofuel were analysed by Gas chromatography Mass Spectrometry. Among 41 identified short-chains hydrocarbons 5were detected at highest peaks and they contained carbon number in range of C22-C22. Belong to Alkane, Alkene and Alcohol. This strain is of a big importance on our society as it should be used in industries to produce energy that should solve a part of world energy problems.
