The influence of other hemicellulosic sugars (arabinose, galactose, mannose and glucose), oxygen limitation, and initial xylose concentration on the fermentation of xylose to xylitol was investigated using experimental design methodology. Oxygen limitation and initial xylose concentration had considerable influences on xylitol production by Canadida tropicalis ATCC 96745. Under semiaerobic conditions, the maximum xylitol yield was 0.62 g/g substrate, while under aerobic conditions, the maximum… CONTINUE READING
