Application Notes

Spiculisporic acid is a surfactant isolated from Penicillium minioluteum and Penicillium spiculisporum by Raistrick and Birkinshaw in the early 1930s. Spiculisporic acid is used as a biosurfactant for metal decontamination processes and fine polymer production. Spiculisporic acid removed 58% of cadmium and 89% of lead from model polluted water at pH 7.0 and 4.6, respectively.
