Abstract

Overall rate of bioproduction in 1,3-propanediol dehydrogenase, an enzyme that catalyse the synthesis of the precursor of aromatic high quality plastic, could be affected by preliminary product 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde (HPA) where many structural properties have been summarily analysed via nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), Fourier Transformed Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gas Phase Chromatography (GPC), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Although the chemical instrumental analysis of the 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde (HPA) may not produce desired result but the data obtained could be useful for future similar analysis that are rare in bulk production. The microbial consumption of various media especially those with the highest activities has been conducted, with the initial identification of Acidovorax sp. as the best propanediol dehydrogenase production strains.
