Summary

Natural 2-heptanone is a key component of various dairy flavours. The production of this compound from octanoic acid by Fusarium poae is described in this paper. The yield of the fermentation can be considerably increased by stripping the product from the outlet gas by adsorption on an Amberlite XAD-4 column.
