Abstract

Microbial degradation of geraniol, citronellol, linalool and their corresponding acetates, structurally modified linalool and linalyl acetate, α-terpineol and β-myrcene are presented. Oxygenative and prototropic rearrangements are normally observed during the microbial metabolism of monoterpenes. Three types of oxygenation reactions are observed, namely, (a) allylic oxygenation (b) oxygenation on a double bond and (c) addition of water across the double bond. The studies indicate commonality in the reaction types or processes occurring during the metabolism of various related monoterpenes and also establish the convergence of degradative pathways at a central catabolic intermediate.
