The phenol-assimilating yeast Candida maltosa is able to degrade monochlorophenols but cannot grow on these substrates. 3- and 4-chlorophenol were broken down very rapidly by phenol-grown cells under the formation of 4-chlorocatechol, 5-chloropyrogallol and 4-carboxymethylenebut-2-en-4-olide with concomitant release of chloride. 2-Chlorophenol was partially converted into cis,cis-2-chloromuconic acid via 3-chlorocatechol which was also obtained from 3-chlorophenol in low amounts.
