The purpose of this research is biosynthesis and characterize the exopolysaccharide extracted from marine yeast isolated from marine soil for manipulate the environmental stress in industrial applications. Biosynthesis of exopolysaccharide (MYCtPs) derived by isolated strain Candida tropicalis (MYCt)MCAS01 and delineation of their physiochemical, biochemical, and microbial characteristics and composition. Thermogravimetric analysis confirmed the thermal stability of the MYCtPs along with the reaction kinetics. 13 C-NMR and GC-MS analysis demonstrated a complex and heterogeneous nature of the MYCtPs. FT-IR, EDAX, and UV spectrum analysis revealed the presence of functional groups such as carboxyl, carbonyl, and ester. The X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and the zeta potential exhibited the stability of the MYCtPs. The SEM micrograph demonstrated the size of (MYCtPs) is 1264.354 m (d0.5). Thus, study reveals that marine yeast produces novel polysaccharides of potential for applications in propitious bio sectors.
