Use of artificial electron acceptors in oxidation reactions catalyzed by acetic acid bacteria

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The ability of several electron acceptors to promote the Gluconobacter oxydans catalyzed oxidation of glycerol was investigated. p-Benzoquinone was the most effective electron acceptor. The reaction rate obtained with p-benzoquinone was higher than the maximal rate with the natural electron acceptor, oxygen, in all the oxidation reactions tested.
