Abstract

Lignin-related compounds containing the -aryl ether linkage were metabolized by as sole carbon source. Growth measurements were made and degradation intermediates were identified using thin-layer chromatography, gas-liquid chromatography, and infra-red, proton nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectroscopy. Degradation pathways were established by the detection of methanol as the product of demethoxylation reactions, and cleavage of the -aryl ether bond was demonstrated by the use of a C-labelled model compound.
