English term or phrase:homoacetic
"a homoacetic fermentation", e.g., performed by an acetogen.
A carbohydrate source is converted to lactic acid or lactate.
It seems that the conversion is carried out in two steps. First the carbohydrates are converted to lactate or lactic acid by a homolactic fermentation, and then the lactic acid or lactiate is converted to acetic acid or acetate by a homoacetic fermentation. I found the term "homolaktisk" but not the corresponding "homoacetisk".
