  • Pseudomonas oleovorans was grown separately on 3-hydroxy-6-octenoic acid and 3-hydroxy-7-octenoic acid as the only carbon source and under ammonium nutrient-limiting conditions to produce storage polyesters. The polyesters produced contained mainly unsaturated C8 units. Small amounts of both the saturated and the unsaturated C6 units were also present, but only about 1% of the saturated 3-hydroxyoctanoate units was detected. The polyester obtained from 3-hydroxy-6-octenoic acid, which was a… CONTINUE READING
