Abstract

A strain of Zymomonas mobilis (ZYM-TS 1) was isolated from fermenting palm wine (toddy). In addition to glucose, sucrose and fructose, the organism utilized hydrolysates of corn (Zea mays) flour, corn starch and ragi (Eleusine coracana) flour. Amounts of ethanol produced in media (adjusted to 10% (w/v) total carbohydrates) fortified with wheat bran extract only, were comparable with those obtained from defined media containing yeast extract (NH4)2SO4, KH2PO4 and MgSO4.7H2O. Results indicate that wheat bran extract can supply all the necessary nutrients required for ethanol production by Z. mobilis.
