Figure 6. Effect of different Ferrocyanide concentration on citric acid production by Aspergillus niger GCBT7. All the fermentations were carried out at 30ºC following growth on 150 g/l initial sugar concentration. The initial pH of the molasses medium was kept constant at 6.0 throughout the fermentation period of 6-days. Qp = g citric acid produced/l/h, Yp/x = g citric acid produced/g cells formed, qp = g citric acid produced/g cells/h.
