 Title    Semicontinuous and Continuous Production of Citric Acid with Immobilized Cells of Aspergillus niger  
 Abstract    The citric acid excretion of Ca-alginate-immobilized cells of Aspergillus niger in batch culture decreased with a half-time of approximately 19 days. Reactivation of the biocatalysts by regenera­ tion in growth medium was possible, but it was followed by a submerged sporulation of the fungus, and medium was highly contaminated with free cells. Citric acid production could better be prolonged by semicontinuous cultivation with medium exchange every 7 or 14 days, respective­ ly. After 32 days the remaining activity in semicontinuous culture was 1.4-fold higher than in comparable batch experiments. Similar improvements were obtained with a continuous process at a dilution rate of 0.125 v/v • d, whereby medium efflux

 Title    Biotransformation of Monoterpenes by Polyurethane Foam-Immobilized Cells of Petroselinum crispum (Mill) Nyman  
 Abstract    Cells o f Petroselinum crispum cv. "Paramount" and "Plain-leaved" immobilized in polyure­ thane foam retained the biotransformational characteristics o f their freely suspended cells for certain monoterpenic substrates. Immobilized cells o f both cultivars were more efficient than their free cells in isomerizing geraniol into nerol, but less efficient (< 60%) in reducing the alde­ hydes, citral and citronellal. M aintenance o f the immobilized cells under the condition o f growth limitation did not enhance the efficiency o f the biochemical reactions. Under the same condition, the freely suspended cells o f cult. "Paramount" exhibited higher efficiency (up to 1.6 times) o f biotransformation o f citral when compared to those in sucrose-supplemented me­ dia. This investigation lends support to the view that the biochemical productivity o f cultured plant cells for especially monoterpenoids may not necessarily be improved upon immobiliza­ tion.
