The production of organic acids covers two aspects: first, the metabolic pathways involved in the biosynthesis, and, second, the industrial process strategy adopted. The review seeks to show the underlying biochemical similarities in the biosynthesis of organic acids and the resulting similarities in the commercial processes. Two groups of acids are defined, those with a "long" biosynthetic path from glucose, involving much of the glycolytic pathway and the tricarboxylic acid cycle, and those… CONTINUE READING
