Biosynthesis and Development of Novel Method for Commercial Production of Biosurfactant utilizing waste potato peels
by Dr. Vishal Vijay Pande, 04 Jul 2019

Abstract The aim of this research work is to create compelling strategy for biosurfactant generation by waste potato peels and pulp utilizing mutated B.Subtilis DDU20161. Major parameters like creation of medium, fomentation, and pH were kept up in the investigation. The ideal biosurfactant yield by acetone extraction technique was 253.79 mgL-1 with Biomass of 3.56 gL-1 at 40 hrs. The produced Biosurfactant was characterised by studying surface tension, emulsification index, TLC, CMC and FTIR study. The highest emulsification index was 75.05% in Benzene, Critical Micelle Concentration(CMC) was found 0.028µM, and FT-IR study revealed presence of peptide bond at 3188cm-1 (=N-H). The results of stability study indicated that the produced biosurfactant is steady at 30ᵒ-1000C and at alkaline pH without any significant change in surface tension properties of biosurfactant. This work was concentrated at the synthesis of biosurfactant utilizing acetone precipitation system.
