The dioxygenolytic catabolism of five C-methylated hydroquinones and 2,6-dichlorohydroquinone in Pseudomonas sp. strain HH35 was elucidated. This organism, which is known to catabolise 2,6-dimethylhydroquinone by 1,2-cleavage, accumulated metabolites from 2-methyl-, 2,3-dimethyl-, 2,5-dimethyl-, 2,3,5-trimethyl- and 2,3,5,6-tetramethylhydroquinone which we isolated and characterised
