Improvement of isopropanol production by metabolically engineered Escherichia coli using gas stripping.

To improve isopropanol production by metabolically engineered Escherichia coli strain TA76, the optimization of fermentation conditions and isopropanol removal by gas stripping were performed. Isopropanol is one of the simplest secondary alcohols, and it can be dehydrated to yield propylene, which is currently derived from petroleum as a monomer for making… CONTINUE READING
