Simulated Moving Bed Chromatography (SMBC) for Continuous Purification of Xylitol

11 January 2018

Simulated moving bed chromatography (SMBC) was applied for the purification of xylitol from fermentation mash of a fed batch culture, enabling nearly 100 % purity and recovery. This tehnique allows for large-scale purification of xylitol from the biological xylose-xylitol conversion process.
