Since 1956, we have isolated many strains of hydrocarbon-assimilating microorganisms from oil brine, natural gas, oil fields, natural gas fields, and from aircraft fuel and studied the met,abolism of hydrocarbons by Candida rugosa (IIZURA et al. 1964a, b, 1966, 1968, IIDA and IIZUKA 1969. On the other hand, while investigating the fungal utilization of hydrocarbons, we found the ester formation from %-alkanes by fungi isolated from aircraft fuel.I n regard to ester formation from hydrocarbons, S T E W~R T et …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
