Composition of the headspace gas affected the biotransformation pattern of toluic acid isomers in anoxic sediment slurries. Under an N2 atmosphere, o- and m-, and p-toluic acid (20-25 mg L(-1)) were biotransformed in 100 days, 77 days, and 148 days...

Mouse hepatic microsomal enzymes catalyzed the oxidation of o-, m-, and p-tolualdehydes, intermediate metabolites of xylene, to the corresponding toluic acids. Cofactor requirement for the catalytic activity indicates that the microsomes contain NAD- and NADPH-dependent enzymes for this reaction. GC/MS...
