Concentrations of glucose, xylose and furfural during fermentation of defined media by suspended and encapsulated xylose-fermenting yeast. (A–F) Concentrations of glucose, xylose and furfural for (A, C, E) freely suspended and (B, D, F) encapsulated Saccharomyces cerevisiae CEN.PK XXX in anaerobic batch cultures on defined media containing different initial concentrations of glucose, xylose and furfural. Average values ± 1 standard deviation, n = 3.
