SummaryPseudomonas cells adapted to 2-methylhexane oxidize 5-methylhexanoic andiso-valeric acids rapidly. The oxidation rates of 2-methylhexanoic and propionic acids are appreciably lower. It can be concluded that primary attack on the C6 atom is distinctly favoured over that on C1.By use of gas-liquid chromatography, 2-methylhexanoic, 5-methylhexanoic andiso-valeric acids were shown to be formed when heptane-grown cells were incubated with 2-methylhexane. When 2-methylhexane-grown cells were… Expand
