    Abstract

    Asid asetik merupakan sumber penting kepada industri kimia dan ia dihasilkan dari takungan bahan api fosil yang semakin merosot seperti minyak galian dan gas asli. Jalan alternatif untuk menghasilkan produk kimia organik berasaskan sumber biologi diperbaharui contohnya gas karbon monoksida (CO) adalah penting untuk mengurangkan pergantungan kepada takungan petroleum. Acetic acid, an important industrial feedstock for chemicals is mainly produced from depleting fossil fuels resources either from mineral oil or natural gas. An alternative route to produce organic chemicals based on renewable biological resources like carbon monoxide (CO) gas is foremost important to relieve the heavily dependency on petroleum reserves and convert the relatively cheap and low value waste CO to valuable chemical feedstock.
