Paper Abstract

A fermenter was constructed in which cheese whey was converted into ethanol by the yeast Candida pseudotropicalis ATCC 8619. The reaction mixture was continuously circulated through an internal reflection flow-through cell located in the cell compartment of an FT-IR spectrometer. Methods were developed to analyse the substrate (lactose) and product (ethanol) continuously. The results provided information on the conditions necessary to optimise a potentially important process.
