Abstract
The hexanoic acid could be converted to valuable chemicals, for example, adipic acid (nylon’s material) by oxidation process and hexanol by hydrogenation. For the isolation of hexanoic acid producing bacteria from cow rumen, RCM (Reinforced clostrdia medium) with glucose as carbon source and hexanoic acid as selection pressure was used. Isolated bacteria was designated Megasphaera sp. nov. BS-4 and its 16s rDNA showed 94 % similarity with Megasphaera paucivorans DSM 16981. Physiological test is performed by API kit and API 50CH showed that Megasphaera sp. nov. BS-4 uses D, L-arabinose, inositol and fructose. Especially, the isolated bacterium showed the maximum hexanoic acid production, around 4g/L without pH adjustment, when fructose was used as a carbon source.
