The metab. of acetates of geraniol, nerol, and citronellol by Pseudomonas incognita was studied. The organism initiates the degrdn. of these acetates by hydrolyzing them to their resp. alcs. Metab. of geranyl acetate by this organism resulted in the formation of geraniol, geranic acid, and 3-hydroxycitronellic acid; that of nerylacetate to nerol, neranic acid, and 3-hydroxycitronellic acid; and that of citronellyl acetate to citronellol and citronellic acid. Growth studies clearly indicated that the toxic effects of acyclic monoterpene alcs. are reduced considerably when the corresponding acetates of these alcs. are used as substrates.
