The reduction of aromatic and aliphatic (di)carboxylic acids to their corresponding aldehydes and alcohols by the hyperthermophilic organism Pyrococcus furiosus was investigated. The reduction was performed with P. furiosus cells growing in the presence of 1 mM acid with starch as a carbon and energy source at 90°C. The aromatic acids t-cinnamic and 3-phenylpropionic acid were reduced to their corresponding alcohols with the highest yields in the described batch cultures: 67 and 69… CONTINUE READING
