Abstract:

In the current context of eco-pollution, the substitute of conventional plastics with bioplastics is a big confront. On account of that, a non-growth associated PHB production study was conducted using Zobellella species under submerged fermentation process. As a result, Zobellella species showed the ability to accumulate 2.2g/L of PHB at pH 8. 0, temperature 37oC, salt concentration 2% in modified growth medium containing vitamins. Then, primary structural characterization of extracted polymer was conducted by FTIR analysis. The high intense peak was obtained at 1720.50 cm-1 corresponding to ester carbonyl (C=O) stretching vibration of PHB. This finding will be paved the way of researchers during selection of suitable vitamins containing inexpensive carbon sources for cost effective PHB production. Thus, extensive research is highly indispensible for bioconversion of vitamin containing raw materials to PHB.
