Isolation and Screening of Polyhydroxyalkanoates Producing Bacteria from Pulp, Paper, and Cardboard Industry Wastes
GC/MS analysis of poly(3HB) purified from NAP11 and NAC1 isolates. (a) GC of NAP11 showing main peak at 13.667 min of 3HB dimer. (b) GC of NAC1 showing main peak at 13.667 min of 3HB dimer and 3 other peaks indicating the presence of 3HV in the purified polymer. (c) MS graph showing that the major peak at m/z 73 is of hexadecanoic acid.
