Relationship between interfacial hydrophobicity and hydroxylation activity of fungal cells located on an organic–aqueous interface
In a liquid–liquid interface bioreactor, fungal cells locate in a hydrophilic polyacrylonitrile microsphere layer on an aqueous–organic interface. In this article, effects of hydrophobicity of the interface on n-decane hydroxylation activity of Monilliera sp. NAP 00702 was examined. (−)-4-Decanol production was significantly enhanced to 132% by addition of polytetrafluoroethylene.
