Bioconversion of D-sorbitole into L-sorbose with immobilized bacterial cells
Languages of publication
Gluconobacter sp. cells were immobilized in three different carriers:agar, calcium alginate and k-carrageenan.In all the three cases we achieved good conversion of D-sorbitol into L-sorbitol.The best effects were obtained while using alginate as a carrier.The yield of bioconversion reached about 80% as soon aas after in 31 hours of the process,at pH=7.Using agar as a carrier, a similar yield (about 80%) was achieved during 43 hours of the process.Carrageenan used as a carrier gave a little worse results- the yield of about 70%.
