[CEST2019_00861] Biopolymer extraction assay from fungal biomass
by Arbia W., Aili D., Adour L.
The cultivation of Penicillium strain, isolated from rotten vegetables, on potatoe dextrose broth (PDB) medium enriched in arginine and mineral elements, allowed to obtain a yield of 31.7 mg/g of dry biomass and 9 mg/g of dry biomass into chitin and natural chitosan, respectively. The infrared spectroscopy analysis showed a great similarity between the infrared spectra of chitin and natural chitosan obtained and the commercial chitin and chitosan, respectively.
