Biosurfactant-producing bacteria were isolated from mangrove sediment samples collected in the southern part of Thailand by an enrichment-culture technique in which lubricating oil was the sole carbon source. A total of 1,600 colonies were obtained, which were screened for biosurfactant production using the qualitative drop-collapsing test in a mineral(More)
The Leucobacter komagatae 183 strain, isolated from mangrove sediment in Trang, southern Thailand, was evaluated as a potential biosurfactant producer. The biosurfactant production was carried out by using a mineral salt medium with commercial sugar and monosodium glutamate as the carbon and nitrogen source, respectively. The microbial growth was(More)
Biosurfactant-producing bacteria were isolated from mangrove sediment in southern Thailand. Isolates were screened for biosurfactant production by using the surface tension test. The highest reduction of surface tension was achieved with a bacterial strain which was identified by 16S rRNA gene sequencing as Oleomonas sagaranensis AT18. It has also been(More)
Biosurfactant-producing bacteria, isolate CT2, was isolated from mangrove sediment in the south of Thailand. The sequence of the 16S rRNA gene from isolate CT2 showed 100 % similarity with Selenomonas ruminantium. The highest biosurfactant production (5.02 g/l) was obtained when the cells were grown on minimal salt medium containing 15 g/l molasses and 1(More)
Two types of biosurfactant (BS)-producing bacteria, Bacillus licheniformis TR7 and Bacillus subtilis SA9, were isolated from mangrove sediment in the south of Thailand. The BS production was done by using only molasses as a whole medium for growth and production. Under optimized conditions, the yields of TR7 and SA9 BS were found to be 3.30 and 3.78 g/l,(More)
Microbial surface active compounds (SACs) were isolated from various environmental sources in Thailand. Isolates were screened for SACs production in different carbon sources (crude glycerol, commercial sugar, decanter, glucose, molasses, used palm oil, and used lubricating oil) by using drop-collapsing test and emulsification activity. Molasses produced(More)
