Abstract A species of the genus Nocardia that could utilize cyclohexanone as a sole carbon source was isolated from soil. Cyclohexanone-grown cultures grew readily on cyclohexanol, cis, trans-cyclohexane-1,2-diol, cis-cyclohexane-1,2-diol, adipic acid and 2-hydroxycyclohexane-1-one without a noticeable lag period. The bacterium also grew on pimelic acid but only after a lag period of 4 days. Resting cell suspensions of cyclohexanone-grown cells were found to oxidize cyclohexanone, cyclohexanol, cyclohexane-1,2-dione, cis, trans-cyclohexane-1,2-diol and 2-hydroxycyclohexane-1-one at high {Mathematical expression} values. Evidence was obtained that indicated that the bacterium degraded cyclohexanone via 2-hydroxycyclohexane-1-one.
