Abstract The biotransformation of isosteviol (ent-16-ketobeyeran-19-oic acid) by three fungi is described. Aspergillus niger produced the 7 beta-OH derivative, ent-7 alpha-hydroxy-16-ketobeyeran-19-oic, and the 1 alpha, 7 beta-diOH derivative, ent-1 beta, 7 alpha-dihydroxy-16-ketobeyeran-19-oic acid. The 17-OH compound, ent-17-hydroxy-16-ketobeyeran-19-oic acid, was obtained with Penicillium chrysogenum. Rhizopus arrhizus produced the 7 beta-OH derivative, ent-7 alpha-hydroxy-16-ketobeyeran-19-oic acid. The isolated metabolites were characterised by IR, NMR and MS.
