Effects of various organic acids and salts on the stabilization of nitrile hydratase were investigated. The stability of the nitrile hydratase of Brevibacterium CH2 during storage was greatly enhanced by the addition of n-butyric acid. Effects of temperature, pH, and concentrations of acrylonitrile and n-butyric acid on acrylamide production by the resting cells were also investigated. Acrylamide production per unit dry weight of the cells increased 1.33 times by the addition of 0.05% n-butyric acid. A 20% acrylamide solution was successfully produced in a bench-scale reactor (12 l) with only a trace amount of salts after 10 h of hydration reaction under optimum reaction conditions without using an isotonic substrate. The conversion yield was nearly 100%, and acrylic acid as a by-product was not produced. Final acrylamide production of 400 g g-1 cells and productivity of 20 g/(g cells l-1 . h-1) were obtained.
