Caproate always appears during fermentative H(2) production but its formation was not well explained. It possibly results from the secondary fermentation of ethanol and acetate or butyrate by some special species like Clostridium kluyveri. This study attempts to elucidate caproate formation during the fermentation H(2) production by using C. kluyveri as an example and evaluating several possible pathways of caproate formation. A detailed energetic analysis of the empirical data of an H(2… CONTINUE READING
