Growth of Synechococcus sp. immobilized in chitosan with different times of contact with NaOH

By Bily Aguilar-May, M. del Pilar Sánchez-Saavedra, Jaime Lizardi and Domenico Voltolina


The thickness of the walls of the capsules of chitosan-immobilized Synechococcus cultures was dependent on the time of contact with NaOH and was directly related to culture growth. After an initial lag phase, probably caused by cell damage, the capsules obtained after 80 s in a 0.1 N NaOH solution showed better growth than that of free cell cultures (6.9 and 5.2 divisions in 10 days, respectively)
