The reaction temperature used in the current industrial glucose isomerization process is limited to 60C because of by- product and color formation that occur at high temperature and alkaline pH because the isomerases themselves are not highly thermostable (Lee and Zeikus 1991; Vieille and Zeikus 2001).
