Title
Application of ion exchange to purify acarbose from fermentation broths
Abstract

Acarbose is conventionally used to reduce the insuline consumption of the diabetic patients. This compound is an oligosaccharide with the general formulae C25H43NO18 and obtained from fermentation processes by certain strains of Actinoplanes Utahensis. After the fermentation process, the acarbose has to be isolated from the fermentation broth where is accompanied of a large amount of substances, such as substrates, intermediate metabolites, proteins and different salts.Four strong acid resins considering geliform and macroporous matrix types in aqueous and organic media have been tested in order to reach an easy and selective separation process. According to the experimental data, the Finex CS10GC (a gel strong cationic ion exchanger) presented the maximum acarbosa uptake and also the highest rate of ion exchange in water. The best behavior in non-aqueous media was observed with the Purolite CT151 (macroporous ion exchanger) but its maximum capacity of ion exchange was really lower than that exhibited by the Finex CS10GC resin in aqueous media. These results suggest that the acarbose removal from fermentation broths must be carried out in aqueous media to ensure the maximum usage of the resin uptake capacity. The results obtained provide a significant insight into the main equilibrium phenomena that takes place depending on the characteristics of the liquid phase. Finally, the elution of acarbose from the resin can be accomplished of a selectivity way by using a solution of 2.25N of HCl. The proposed separation method seems to be technically and economically feasible.
