The fermentation of glycerol to 1,3-propanediol, acetate, and butyrate by Clostridium butyricum was studied with respect to growth inhibition by the accumulating products. The clostridia were grown in a pH-auxostat culture at low cell density and product concentration and near maximum growth rate. The products were then added individually to the medium in… (More)
