Fermentation of 2-methoxyethanol by Acetobacterium malicum sp. nov. and Pelobacter venetianus

  title={Fermentation of 2-methoxyethanol by Acetobacterium malicum sp. nov. and Pelobacter venetianus},
  author={Kazuhiro Tanaka and Norbert Pfennig},
  journal={Archives of Microbiology},
Anaerobic bacteria degrading 2-methoxyethanol were enriched from freshwater sediments, and three strains were isolated in pure culture. Two of them were Grampositive non-spore-forming rods and grew strictly anaerobically by acetogenic fermentation. Optimal growth occurred at 30°C, initial pH 7.5–8.0. 2-Methoxyethanol and 2-ethoxyethanol were fermented to acetate and corresponding alcohols. Hydrogen plus carbon dioxide, formate, acetoin, l-malate, lactate, pyruvate, fructose, and methoxyl groups… Expand

Fermentation of phenoxyethanol to phenol and acetate by a homoacetogenic bacterium
Results indicate that the ether linkage of phenoxyethanol is cleaved by a shift of the hydroxyl group to the subterminal carbon atom, analogous to a corrinoid-dependent diol dehydratase reaction, to form an unstable hemiacetal that releases phenol and acetaldehyde. Expand

Four strains of new homoacetogenic bacteria were enriched and isolated from freshwater sediments and sludge with ethanol, propanol, 1,2-propanediol, or 1, 2-butanediol as substrates and methane was formed in coculture with methanogens, probably due to interspecies hydrogen transfer. Expand
