Abstract

Bacterial cellulose (BC) is one of the most promising nano-biomaterials with broad prospective applications, which has tremendous economic and societal benefits in many different fields, such as textile, food, medicine, paper, diaphragms of acoustic apparatus. By using various carbon sources, the changes in fermentation parameters of Acetobacter xylinum static cultivations were investigated. The results indicated that mannitol was the best carbon source for high-yield production of BC. Scanning electron microscope images showed that A. xylinum was about 2 um long and 0.8 μum wide. Diameter distribution of BC ranged from 10 to 80 nm, among which 80% distributed between 20 and 50 nm and the range of 30-40 nm was most.
