Microbial synthesis of n-butanol, isobutanol, and other higher alcohols from diverse resources.

Abstract

Microbial production of fuel and chemical feedstock is a promising approach to solving energy and environmental problems. n-Butanol, isobutanol and other higher alcohols are of particular interest because they can serve as both fuel and chemical feedstock. Alternative resources such as CO2, syngas, waste protein, and lignocellulose are currently being… (More)
