Abstract

Inclusion of cyclodextrins into an agar gel enabled a homogeneous incorporation of water-immiscible lipophilic organic liquids and solids as substrates for surface microbial growth or conversion. Surface cultivation of Candida lipolytica and C. tropicalis was demonstrated in alpha- and beta-cyclodextrin/hexadecane-agar media.
