Production and Characterization of the Polymer Polyhydroxy Butyrate-co-polyhydroxy Valerate by Bacillus Megaterium NCIM 2475


Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are biodegradable polyesters which are synthesized by many bacteria. They are accumulated intracellularly as carbon and energy reserves under certain conditions like, in the presence of excess carbon source. The oldest known such polymer is poly hydroxy butyrate (PHB). How ever, commercial exploitation of such polymers have not… (More)
