Novel biotechnological production process of itaconic acid

Itaconic acid is one of the top bio-based chemical building blocks and thus a promising platform compound for the production of polymers, cheap replica watches online sale coatings, chemical compounds and biofuels. It is an important monomer for the synthesis of, e.g. poly-acrylates, rubber, colours, additives, adhesives, emulsifying agents, lipids, pharmaceuticals, herbicides and biodegradable polymers for the packaging industry.
A German university developed an innovative production process of itaconic acid. Currently, itaconic acid is commercially produced by microbial fermentation using filam
