Hydroxylation of aromatic compounds was observed in NADH-phenazine methosulfate-O2 model system known to generate superoxide anions (Image ). Addition of superoxide dismutase prepared from ovine erythrocytes to this hydroxylating system resulted in complete inhibition, suggesting an involvement of Image in aromatic hydroxylations.
