Conversion of heterocyclic and aromatic aldehydes to the corresponding carboxylic acids was carried out using Acetobacter rancens IFO3297, A. pasteurianus IFO13753 and Serratia liquefaciens LF14. IFO3297 produced 110g 2-furoic acid l-1 from furfural with a 95% molar yield. 5-Hydroxymethyl-2-furancarboxylic acid was produced from the corresponding aldehyde… CONTINUE READING
