Metabolic engineering of clostridia (e.g., C. acetobutylicum) for: (1) the highly selective production of butyric acid; (2) the production of isopropanol, in which ADC and SADH are the native acetoacetate decarboxylase and secondary alcohol dehydrogenase from C. beijerinckii, respectively; (3) the production of other chemicals, such as ethanol, isobutanol, acetoin, 2,3-butanediol, and hydrogen
