AMPTS® II was used for ethanol fermentation using YPD medium with addition of acetic acid to study the inhibitory effect of acetic acid on the activity of yeast, S. cerevisiae KF-7. It appears to be essential to maintain acetic acid concentration below certain level for efficient ethanol fermentation.
