Abstract

SUMMARY: The main mechanism for propionic acid formation by organisms of the genus is by the decarboxylation of succinic acid. The varying ratios of propionic to acetic acid reported in the literature as a result of the fermentation of glucose are attributed to differences in carbon dioxide tension and in the initial and final pH values of the cultures.
