Abstract: Citric acid is the most important commercial product which is produced by using various sugar substrates in the terrestrial environment. The present study is an attempt to show the effect of 9-aminoacridine hydrochloride hemihydrate on the degradation of sucrose to citric acid by the fungal strain Aspergillus candidus. The aerobic degradation of sucrose to citric acid can decrease sucrose yield and affect end product quality. It has been found that mutagen of 9-aminoacridine hydrochloride hemihydrates has stimulatory effect on the novel method of citric acid production by Aspergillus candidus NCIM-883 and yield of citric acid to some extent.
