Factors that may initiate the metabolic transition for butanol production were investigated in batch cultures of Clostridium beijerinckii (synonym, Clostridium butylicum) VPI 13436. Cultures maintained at pH 6.8 produced nearly as much butanol as those incubated without pH control, indicating that neither a change in the culture pH nor acid conditions per se are always required to initiate solvent formation. Acetate and butyrate levels at the onset of butanol production were dependent on the pH… Expand
