    • Abstract


      Several microorganisms utilising terephthalate and diethylphthalate have been isolated from garden soil. Protocatechuate was one of the intermediates in the degradation of terephthalic acid and diethylphthalate. Accumulation of protocatechuate during the growth of these strains has been described.
