Biotechnological synthesis of 1,3-propanediol using Clostridium ssp
African Journal of Biotechnology
1,3-Propanediol (PD) is an important chemical product which can be used for synthesis reactions, in particular, as a monomer for polycondensations to produce polyesters, polyethers and polyurethanes. It is produced by two methods, chemical synthesis and microbial conversion. Recently, the increasing interest in microbial conversion was observed. Glycerol is used as a substrate in this process and it may be fermented to 1,3-PD by, among others, Citrobacter ssp., Klebsiella ssp., Lactobacillusdoi:10.5897/ajb11.873 fatcat:coyuqqiorfg7vfs56beo6szdi4
