Effects of propionate and acetate additions on solvent production in batch cultures of Clostridium acetobutylicum.


Addition of acetate or propionate to uncontrolled-pH batch cultures does not affect the initiation of solventogenesis but does enhance final solvent concentrations compared with those of unchallenged cultures. This observation can be explained in terms of the increased buffering capacity of the medium brought about by the added acids, resulting in… (More)
