Abstract

Microorganisms which can assimilate 2-phenylethanol were screened from soil for oxidation of various alcohols into carbonyl compounds. One strain, identified as Brevibacterium sp. KU1309, had high oxidative activity towards ArCH(CH3)CH2OH and Ar(CH2)nOH. When the substrate concentration was 0.1∼0.4% (w/v), the oxidation reaction proceeded smoothly (6∼96 h), and the corresponding carboxylates were obtained in good yields (68∼87%).
