The metabolism of Clostridium acetobutylicum was manipulated in chemostat culture at pH 5 and 6.5 in a three-electrode potentiostatic system with methyl viologen (MV) as the electron carrier. When a constant potential was applied at pH 5, the broth redox potential continuously decreased and, simultaneously, a high increase in the reduced MV concentration (MV(+.)) and the specific rate of butanol production was observed while butyric acid was taken up. A linear relationship was reported between… CONTINUE READING
