1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol biotransformation to epichlorohydrin by the whole cells of recombinant Escherichia coli via resin-based in situ product removal has been investigated. It is used in the synthesis of glycerol, in the production of plastics and textiles and in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals. Also used as a solvent and as a cement for celluloid. It is also present in some foods, e.g. soy sauce, soup spices and instant soups, from hydrolization of proteins.
