Quantification of the biosurfactants produced by a variety of microorganisms is a time taking and difficult task due to the lack of rapid, efficient and accurate methods. This work presents a simple turbidometric method for quantification of crude biosurfactants based on their property to become insoluble at low pH values. Biosurfactants obtained from a Bacillus sp. using different carbon substrates showed a good linear correlation (R(2)>0.99) between biosurfactant concentrations and turbidity… CONTINUE READING
