Abstract

Exopolysaccharide was produced by NCIB 9068 grown under a variety of environmental conditions. The rate of exopolysaccharide synthesis from sucrose in continuous culture remained within the range 5 to 14 mg-atom C (g cell) h for specific growth rates of 0·05 to 0·25 h, for rates of sucrose utilization of 16 to 105 mg-atom C (g cell) h and for a range of growth-limiting nutrients, including sucrose.
