Butanol production from hexoses and pentoses by fermentation of Clostridium acetobutylicum.


The present paper reports the characterization of ABE (acetone-butanol-ethanol) production by Clostridium acetobutylicum DSM 792 for sugars representative of hydrolysed lignocellulosic biomass (glucose, mannose, arabinose, xylose). The attention was focused on: the selection of an optimal medium for the simultaneous conversion of the investigated sugars… (More)
