• Organism
  • As Thermotoga maritima is a hyperthermophilic organism, TM1459 is still active at 70°C, however, as the overall recovery of substrate and product was low at elevated temperatures, and organic hydroperoxide tends to rapidly degrade, the conversions were routinely performed at 30°C. Ethylacetate was used as co-solvent to allow the use of increased substrate concentration. (frontiersin.org)
  • residues
  • In this study, Thermotoga maritima, Thermotoga neapolitana DSM 4359 and DSM 5068, were used to investigate their potential in converting selected sugars (glucose and xylose) and complex carbon sources (cellulose, starch, xylan and agricultural residues, such as barley straw, corn stover, soybean straw, wheat straw and corn husk) to hydrogen.
