Abstract: <i style="">Pseudomonas mendocina</i> P<sub>2</sub>d grew in sodium benzoate at as high as 1% concentration and formed a quinonoid compound, identified as <i style="">ortho</i>-benzoquinone, that rendered the medium orange to wine-red in colour. The quinone was not metabilised further by the organism. Sodium benzoate was converted to catechol, which was a central metabolite forming <i style="">ortho-</i>benzoquinone and 2- hydroxymuconic semialdehyde (2-HMS) via.  <i style="">meta</i>ring cleavage pathway.
