H Guo. Optimization of Lactic Acid Batch Fermentation by Immobilized Lactobacllus Pentosus Cells and Its Kinetic Model, 59 pages, 9 tables, 24 figures, 2021. APA style guide used.
Immobilization technology has attracted much attention as an emerging technology, which can potentially be adopted industrial production. In this study, immobilized Lactobacillus pentosus was prepared by chitosan film-coated sodium alginate-polyvinyl alcohol in a batch fermentation reactor. An optimal fermentation condition was determined with the aid of a six-factors by Box-Behnken design. And the error of the highest lactic acid yield and production rate were -0.5% and -0.2%. Furthermore, a kinetic model was also applied to predict the fructose consumption, lactic acid production, and cell growth with high correlation coefficients of 0.9955, 0.9932, and 0.9869.
Key words: Immobilization; Lactobacillus pentosus; Box-Behnken design; Kinetic model
