The effect of methyl viologen addition, and iron and phosphate limitation on product distribution during glycerol fermentation of Clostridium butyricum DSM 5431 was investigated in continuous culture. Special attention was paid to the gaseous products H2 and CO2, which were measured on-line. In all three cases, an increased yield of 1,3-propanediol linked to a decreased hydrogen release was observed, indicating that a higher proportion of electrons was channelled from reduced ferredoxin towards… CONTINUE READING
