Abstract

Three pure cultures of diatoms - a sp., a sp. and a sp. - grown in the presence of naphthalene at 6 or 12 °C oxidized the naphthalene to ethyl acetate-soluble and water-soluble metabolites. The major ethyl acetate-soluble metabolite was identified as 1-naphthol by gas chromatographic and mass spectral analysis. Experiments with [C]naphthalene indicated that the extent of naphthalene metabolism ranged from 0·7 to 1·4 %.
