Butanol is an important industrial solvent and advanced biofuel that can be produced by biphasic fermentation by Clostridium acetobutylicum. Isolates of C.acetobutylicum were first identified between 1912 and 1914, and these were used to develop an industrial starch-based acetone, butanol and ethanol (ABE) fermentation process, to produce acetone for gunpowder production, by Chaim Weizmann during World War I.
