Effect of temperature on the inhibition of organic acids. All organic acids were tested at their respective molar concentrations of the tested organic acids that caused 50% inhibition of the lipid yield. Cultures with 5% inoculum size were incubated at initial pH 6.5 and 160 rpm for 7 days. Results are expressed relative to controls without organic acids. Biomass, lipid content and lipid yield of cultures lacking organic acids at 22°C, 25°C and 28°C were, respectively, 19.9 g/L, 55.8% and 11.1 g/L; 24.0 g/L, 61.7% and 14.8 g/L; and 23.6 g/L, 58.9% and 13.9 g/L. Ac, acetic acid; Fo, formic acid; Le, levulinic acid; Hy, 4-hydroxybenzoic acid; Fu, furoic acid; Ca, caproic acid; Ga, gallic acid; Fe, ferulic acid; Sy, syringic acid; Va, vanillic acid.
