Alcaligenes eutrophus H16 showed some degree of oxygen sensitivity, having the fastest specific growth rate at a dissolved oxygen tension of 60% air saturation. Growth and PHB accumulation kinetics were studied and an accelerated rate of PHB synthesis was obtained when a low concentration of NH4Cl was supplied during the PHB synthesis stage.
