Acetaldehyde stimulation of the growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in the presence of inhibitors found inlignocellulose-to-ethanol fermentations


The addition of small quantities of acetaldehyde to fermentations containing inhibitory concentrations of furfural, acetate and other compounds typically present in lignocellulosic hydrolyzates significantly reduced the lag phase of yeast growth and stimulated ethanol production. Similar effects were observed when acetaldehyde (0.06 g l−1) was added to… (More)
