A large quantity is left on farmlands to be decomposed by microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi and produced number of organic acid metabolites like citric, oxalic, malic, gluconic acids used for bioleaching of metals [8].
For the red to appear, one enzymes had to break glucose into gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide.
Gluconic acid (also known as hexanoic acid, penta hydroxycaproic acid, IUPAC designation is 2,3,4,5,6-penta hydroxyl hexanoic acid) is a mild organic acid derivative from glucose by simple oxidation reaction.
It catalyzes the oxidation of b-glucose to glucono-1,5-lactone, which spontaneously hydrolyzes nonenzymatically to gluconic acid, using molecular oxygen and releasing hydrogen peroxide.
[beta]-D-glucose is then oxidized to gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide.
Once the glucose is inside, the enzyme converts it into gluconic acid. This acid lowers the implant's internal pH, increasing insulin's solubility and diffusion out into the body.
As part of their work, scientists were able to transform glucose and galactose enzymatically to gluconic acid and D-tagatose, respectively.
