Abstract: 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 …
