Bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) samples were produced by the symbiotic culture Мedusomyces gisevii Sa-12 in synthetic nutrient medium and enzymatic hydrolysates of chemically treated oat hulls and studied by X-ray diffraction. The structural characteristics of the crystalline component of BNC samples were determined. A comparison of the X-ray diffraction patterns recorded in reflection and transmission geometry shows that the samples have an anisotropic structure. All BNC samples are characterized by a high degree of crystallinity (from 86 to 93%) and are mainly composed of the low-symmetry metastable phase Iα (its fraction is 93.6–100%). The Мedusomyces gisevii Sa-12 culture was found to produce highly crystalline BNC, with the low-symmetry phase Iα prevailing, regardless of the composition of the nutrient medium.



The study was supported by the Russian Science Foundation, project no. 17-19-01054; the experimental studies were supported by the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations, agreement no. 007-Г3/Ч3363/26.
