Table 2 The effect of acetate inhibition on butyric acid yield in batch fermentations of C. tyrobutyricum with an initial 60 g/L glucose or xylose and run until completion

From: Acetate adaptation of clostridia tyrobutyricum for improved fermentation production of butyrate

Glucose 0.43 0.44 0.43
Xylose 0.43 0.48 0.48
