Isobutene production by Rhodotorula minuta IFO 1102 was studied. It was confirmed that the gas species produced by this yeast was isobutene from the result of analysis with a gas chromatograph mass spectrometer. Oxygen supply was essential to the microbial production of isobutene. The optimum pH was found to be approximately pH 6.0 and optimum temperature… CONTINUE READING
