- ... Crude cell extracts of Pseudomonas putida F6 transformed 4-substituted fluoro-, chloro-, bromo- and iodo-phenol without the exogenous addition of cofactors. The rate of substrate consumption decreased with increasing substituent size (F>Cl>Br>I). Biotransformations resulted in greater than 95% utilisation of the halogenated substrate. Product accumulation was observed in incubations with 4-chloro, ...
