Direct biosynthesis of ascorbic acid from glucose by Xanthomonas campestris through induced free-radicals

Abstract

Ascorbic acid (20.4 g l−1 in 50 h) was synthesized directly from glucose by Xanthomonas campestris as an adaptive response to induced free-radicals through HOCl treatment. Identity of ascorbic acid was confirmed through IR and NMR spectroscopy.
