Abstract

Biosynthesis of 6-pentyl-α-pyrone byTrichoderma harzianum in two different media was evaluated. Best yields were found in nitrogen deficient medium (C/N=60). Limited growth seems to favour the production of this lactone. When fungal cells, precultured in low nitrogen medium, were incubated on methyl ricinoleate (10 g/l, C/N=60) an increase in 6-pentyl-α-pyrone production was observed in comparison with the media containing methyl oleate or methyl linoleate.
