  Fermentation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fermentation is a process that is important in anaerobic conditions when there is no oxidative phosphorylation to maintain the production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) by glycolysis.
In alchemy, fermentation is often the same as putrefaction, meaning to allow the substance to naturally rot or decompose.
Fermentation does not release all the available energy in a molecule; it merely allows glycolysis (a process that yields two ATP per glucose) to continue by replenishing reduced coenzymes.

 fermentation. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Fermentation is achieved by somewhat different chemical sequences in different species of organisms.
In alcoholic fermentation, such as occurs in brewer’s yeast and some bacteria, the production of lactic acid is bypassed, and the glucose molecule is degraded to two molecules of the two-carbon alcohol, ethanol, and to two molecules of carbon dioxide.
Many of the enzymes of lactic acid and alcoholic fermentation are identical to the enzymes that bring about the metabolic conversion known as glycolysis.

 Glycolysis and Fermentation
Fermentation occurs in mammals under circumstances where ATP is required but molecular oxygen is lacking (for example, during sprints).
In fermentation (i.e., when molecular oxygen is absent or in microorganisms which are unable to take advantage of molecular oxygen when it is present), pyruvate serves as the final electron acceptor resulting in the formation of lactic acid, ethanol, etc.

 Early Research on Fermentation
Schwann’s microscopic observations on fermenting yeast were similar to those of Cagniard-Latour, but his work was not restricted to yeast: his interests included a wide range of subjects, and he is now generally considered the principal originator of the cell theory (Schwann, 1839).
His experiments on fermentation, begun in 1857, led him to conclude that a vital force of the yeast cells is involved (Pasteur, 1860); rather than the transfer of a vibrating action of decaying, material to the sugar, as postulated by Liebig (1839).
The only regrettable point in Pasteur’s work on fermentation is that he did not explore Traube’s suggestion of enzyme action in the yeast cells, nor did he visualize the possibility of extracting fermentation enzymes, even though an ever-increasing number of cell-free enzyme actions were being reported.
