Abstract

Propanol can be present in two forms, 1-propanol and 2-propanol, and can be used as biofuel. Especially, the reduction of fossil resources required for renewable energy has paid attention for the inorganic synthesis of propanol. In this regard, the microbial production of propanol is very important. This chapter examines the latest developments in microbial production of propanol. Normally, various synthesis ways of propanol have been developed. However, it has been indicated that the optimization of fermentation conditions has enhanced the prevention of toxic propanol accumulation. For this reason, the low cost and high-efficiency propanol production with the help of biosynthetic pathways from microorganisms is one of the major challenges in microbial fuel cells.
