The allomorphic transformation can also be completed by the dissolution-regeneration process. The swelling of crystalline cellulose was revealed by increasing treatment temperature, which is a typical procedure for changing cellulose allomorph to cellulose II (Zhang et al., ). The mixture of both allomorphs and amorphous cellulose could cause the decrease of crystallinity, contributing to higher enzymatic Author: Zhe Ling, Zhe Ling, Zongwei Guo, Caoxing Huang, Lei Yao, Feng Xu. Non-ionic surfactants with ethylene oxide chains were analysed for their ability to enhance enzymatic hydrolysis of SPS. Cellulose conversion was analysed by quantification of soluble sugars with an HPAEC-PAD chromatography system. The complete enzyme system of T. reesei was used and the end product was glucose due to addition of by: Solid-State NMR Studies of Solvent-Mediated, Acid-Catalyzed Woody Biomass Pretreatment for Enzymatic Conversion of Residual Cellulose Theodore W. Walker Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Engineering Dr., Madison, Wisconsin , United States.   Pretreatment or conversion of the raw material by mechanical, physical, chemical, or enzymatic methods to break down the cellulose to sugars and to modify or remove unwanted side-products, usually lignin and by:

Börjesson et al. () have investigated the enhanced enzymatic conversion of softwood lignocellulose by polyethylene glycol addition. In this study, they have used 1 mL of 50 mM sodium acetate. Cellulose that has undergone enzymatic treatment is crystallographically cellulose I. The peak of the () plane (2 θ =°) in the diffraction patterns of all the treated cellulose becomes sharper than the original samples has a tendency to increase in intensity by the enzymatic treatment (Table 5, Cited by: Thus, the QHT effectively increased the internal specific surface area of poplar wood, which then improved the subsequent conversion rate of cellulose in the enzymatic hydrolysis. Previous studies also reported that the lignocellulosic biomass after pretreatment achieved the high specific surface area, which resulted in the high enzymatic digestibility (Sun et al., ).Author: Liping Tan, Zhongyang Liu, Tongtong Zhang, Zhaojiang Wang, Tongjun Liu.

This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm by: Chemocatalytic transformation of lignocellulosic biomass to value-added chemicals has attracted global interest in order to build up sustainable societies. Cellulose, the first most abundant constituent of lignocellulosic biomass, has received extensive attention for its comprehensive utilization of resource, such as its catalytic conversion into high value-added chemicals and fuels (e.g., HMF Cited by: 2.
