Bioconversion of new methylcyclohexene derivatives with bulky side chains ending in aromatic or heteroaromatic rings by Streptomyces natalensis and Mycobacterium smegmatis results in monohydroxylation of the cyclohexene ring. Further oxidation of the hydroxyl group into a keto group is effected only with M. smegmatis. The synthesis of the substrates and proof of the structure of the products is given in detail.
