The effect of trace amounts of oxygen on the degree of ethanol inhibition in a continuous anaerobic culture of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was studied at the 100 gl −1 feed glucose concentration level. Results showed that the use of micro-aerobic conditions (0,5% of saturation) enhanced the utilisation of substrate by increasing the ethanol tolerance of the yeast without any significant decrease in the ethanol yield per unit substrate consumed. When the results were fitted to an equation of the… CONTINUE READING
