ABSTRACT

Pretreatment with ionic liquids (IL) such as 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride or acetate is an effective method for aiding deconstruction of lignocellulosic biomass; however, the residual IL remaining in hydrolysates can be inhibitory to growth of ethanologenic or oleaginous yeasts that have been examined in the literature. The aim of this study was to identify oleaginous yeasts that are tolerant of the IL [C
