Comments p.208 left column top paragraph:"Table 2 summarizes the yields on glucose of the most important products in the anaerobic, glucose-limited continuous cultures. It is seen that about 80% (w/w) of the consumed glucose is converted into ethanol and carbon dioxide and that these yields are virtually independent of the specific growth rate. On a molar basis Ysc (1.63 mol/mol) is slightly higher than Ysetoh (1.49 mol/mol) since CO2 is formed not only in the synthesis of ethanol but also in a number of anabolic reactions. A little less than 10% (w/w) of the glucose is converted into biomass and another 10% (w/w) ends up as glycerol whereas approximately 1% (w/w) is converted into various organic acids. Ysx decreases slighty with increasing dilution rate whereas Ysgly increases. Yssuc is practically unaffected by the dilution rate whereas YSpyr and especially Ysace increase when the dilution rate is increased from 0.1 to 0.4/h. It is seen that the measured compounds can account for about 98 % (w/w) of the consumed glucose (c.f. Table 2)." For abbreviations see 'compound' column in table. See note above table
