Abstract

Bacterial species are quite readily isolated which are capable of degrading aromatic hydrocarbons. With rare exceptions, they do not perform the opening of the benzene ring unless two hydroxyl groups have been introduced in cis into the nucleus. Thus, before ring fission, methylsubstituted derivatives undergo oxidative demethylation.
