2-Deoxy-d-lyxo-hexonic Acid from 2-Deoxy-d-lyxo-hexose byPseudomonas aeruginosa Fermentation
Aerobic fermentation of media or solutions containing 2-deoxy-@#@ d -lyxo- hexose and calcium carbonate by bacterial cells capable of oxidizing aldoses to aldonic acids was used to prepare 2-deoxy-d-- lyxo- hexonic acid; the acid was isolated in a 62 % yield in the form of its 1,4-lactone.
