Resolution of methyl nonactate by Rhodococcus erythropolis under aerobic and anaerobic conditions
(Amer Chemical Soc, Washington, 2006)
An efficient resolution of methyl nonactate is reported by biotransformation in shake flask cultures of Rhodococcus erythropolis. The equilibrium of the reaction redox system can be manipulated by switching from aerobic ...
Up-Cycling of PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) to the Biodegradable Plastic PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoate)
(Amer Chemical Soc, Washington, 2008)
The conversion of the petrochemical polymer polyethylene terephthalate (PET) to a biodegradable plastic polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is described here. PET was pyrolised at 450 degrees C resulting in the production of a ...
