Articles name:
Obtaining lactic acid by fermentation of starch Yucca the lactobacillus, for use in acid
production polylactic.
Evaluate the production of lactic acid obtained by the fermentation of the name starch
Hawthorn Discourage rotundity by the action of the Lactobacillus mixture
Delbruck ssp. bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, for possible use in
obtaining APL.
Background (reason):
Lactic acid was the first chemical to be produced on an industrial scale in the year
1880 and since then its demand in monomeric form has increased
dramatically for the synthesis of APL (Joan et al., 2012; Mohamed et al., 2010;
and Hossain, 2008). Lactic acid occurs naturally as 2 enantiomers that
in 3 types of lactic acid: two optical isomers, the D (-) lactic acid, L (+) acid
Lactic and its racemic form constituted by equimolar fractions of the D and L forms
It was determined that it must be greater than that required for
polymerization catalyzed by ring opening (ROP), on the other hand, the Ea is higher
that the deactivation energy (Ed), for both DP and ROP. The total yield
of APL and lactide was 52-75% by weight. The uncatalyzed DP method can have
applications in production plants

 Microorganisms used for lactic fermentation
 Lactic fermentation
 The microorganism Streptococcus thermophilus
 Test tube
 Beaker
 test tube
 Pipette
 Vacuum pump
 Petri box
 heating grill
 Distilled water
 Glycerol
 Tween
 carboxymethyl cellulose
The lactic acid produced in the fermentation stage was obtained with a concentration
of 16.26%
It concludes a lot with our project as it goes according to the process that is shown in
the project research

Relationship with the project

has coincidence with in the objective to produce Polylactic acid (PLA) from
fermentation of starch extracted from avocado seed and to obtain lactic acid for to
contribute in the substitution of the Polyethylene Terephthalate.
In the list of materials to use the experiment match certain parameters in the project
As the following materials:
Test tube, Beaker, test tube, pipette, Vacuum pump, Petri box.
in the same result they coincide with the production of Polylactic Acid Production from
Starch and Lactic Acid.
in the project is made with avocado seed and in the article is made based on Yucca.
