Hydrogen production from aromatic acids byRhodopseudomonas palustris

Abstract

The capability of five strains of the phototrophic bacteriumRhodopseudomonas palustris to produce molecular hydrogen (H2) from the aromatic acids benzoate,p-hydroxybenzoate, cinnamate and D- and L-mandelate was investigated. Optimal H2 production was achieved when the strains were grown anaerobically in the light at 10,000 lx under nitrogen (N) limitation… (More)
