Abstract

A simple and rapid technique for the determination of furfural in the culture medium, which contains this compound as a degradation product of xylose at autoclave conditions, was evaluated. Besides, the growth and the furfural metabolism of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe has been monitored using spectral methods.
