Sophorolipids : microbial synthesis and application

Boekbijdrage - Hoofdstuk

Sophorolipids are glycolipidic biosurfactants extracellularly produced by several yeast species. Owing to the nonpathogenic character of the production host and the high yields, there is quite some commercial interest in these molecules. Indeed, to date sophorolipids are available in the market and nd applications in real-life products. Further research is currently being conducted in order to broaden their application range, either by evaluating their behavior in new applications or by modifying the sophorolipid chemical structure.
