Title: Fungal degradation of some aromatic alcohols
Authors: Iyayi, Christopher B.
Issue Date: 1980
Publisher: © Christopher Benaruen Iyayi
Abstract: Twenty species of fungi were examined for their ability to utilize p-coumaryl alcohol, coniferyl alcohol, sinapyl alcohol and mandelic acid, the first three being major constituents of the lignin of wood. Four organisms were selected for further work. These were Aspergillus flavus, Byssochlamys fulva, Polyporus dichrous and Schizophyllum commune. Quantitative growth measurements were made and the rates of oxidation by whole cells and cell-free extracts were studied using manometric techniques. [Continues.]
