Preliminary studies on the metabolism of mandelic acid by Neurospora crassa reveal the operation of a pathway for its degradation which involves benzoyl formic acid, benzaldehyde, benzoic acid, 4-hydroxybenzoic acid, and protocatechuic acid as the intermediates. This pathway is different from that followed by bacterial systems and is the same as that observed in Aspergillus niger.
