Characterization of Biosurfactant production by mutant strain of Candida tropicalis

  title={Characterization of Biosurfactant production by mutant strain of Candida tropicalis},
  author={Ashish and N. Gupta}
Microbial surfactants are surface active materials produced by microorganisms when grown on water immiscible or oily substrates. They become promising alternative to chemically synthesized surfactants due to their low toxicity, higher biodegradability and hence greater environmental compatibility. In this paper our aim is to study and enhance the production of biosurfactant and its characterization by FTIR analysis. The strain Candida tropicalis MTCC 230 got adapted under different… CONTINUE READING
