Abstract

Two species of naphthalene-utilizing bacteria from soil were able to metabolize 1-chloro- and 1-bronionaphthalene. From cultures in which 1-chloro-naphthalene was the sole source of organic carbon, -8-chIoro-l:2-dihydro-1:2-di-hydroxynaphthalene and 3-chlorosalicylic acid were isolated. 3-Bromosalicylic acid was isolated from cultures with 1-bromonaphthalene and evidence of the formation of a ‘diol’ compound obtained. The course of the metabolic pathways is discussed.
