Gluconobacter oxydans could be immobilized as a biocatalyst for the conversion of glycerol to dihydroxyacetone. To reduce the production cost, the cells were produced from agricultural byproducts. Corn meal hydrolysate and corn steep liquor were employed to replace of sorbitol and yeast extract as medium for G. oxydans cell production. The optimal medium contained 80 g/L reducing sugar, 25 g/L corn steep liquor, and 10 g/L glycerol. The cell mass was about 4.22 g/L and the glycerol… CONTINUE READING
