The Direct Analysis of Fermentation Products by Raman Spectroscopy

Volume 41, Number 5 (July 1987) Page 908-912

Shope, Thomas B.; Vickers, Thomas J.; Mann, Charles K.

The increasing importance of chemical synthesis by fermentation has led to interest in monitoring this type of reaction by direct analysis for either the compounds which are being synthesized or the by-products of the synthesis. Special conditions must be met in this type of analysis. The reaction medium is aqueous, and it must be protected from bacterial invasion from the environment. Often the reaction products are nonvolatile compounds.
