A non-axenic strain of the microalgaBotryococcus braunii Kützing, isolated from a small lake in Portugal, when cultured at 25°C in mineral medium and under continuous illumination, showed a poor production of hydrocarbons (5% of the dry biomass) but excreted remarkably high quantities of an exopolysaccharide (4–4.5g/l) into the medium. The production of(More)
In the absence of inhibitory concentrations of copper, the photoautotrophic growth of Chlorella vulgaris INETI58C at 27°C exhibited a higher specific growth rate and reached a higher maximal concentration of biomass, under irradiance of 150 W m−2, compared with 100 W m−2. However, when the mineral growth medium was supplemented with CuSO4 (range 40–80 μM),(More)
