Abstract

In order to study the influence of different carbon sources on Chlorella growth and oil content, a total of 11 kinds of carbon sources are selected as sole carbon source to culture on Chlorella vulgaris. The results show that, glucose and maltose can be as the sole carbon source. The maximum densities of Chlorella vulgar are 4.495×10 8 cell/L and 2.725×10 8 cell/L, and the oil contents are 53.27% and 38.54%, respectively, for glucose and maltose.
