New promising composite materials useful in the adsorption of Cu(II) in ethanol based on cellulose and cellulose acetate
Family 1 carbohydrate binding-modules enhance saccharification rates
Cellulose degrading enzymes usually have a two-domain structure consisting of a catalytic domain and a non-catalytic carbohydrate-binding module. Although it is well known the importance of those modules in cell wall ...
Influence of sugarcane bagasse variability on sugar recovery for cellulosic ethanol production
In the context of cellulosic ethanol production, special attention must be given to the raw material, as it affects final product yield. As observed for sugarcane, bagasse variations may derive from several elements, for ...
Small-angle X-ray scattering and structural modeling of full-length: Cellobiohydrolase I from Trichoderma harzianum
Cellobiohydrolases hydrolyze cellulose releasing cellobiose units. They are very important for a number of biotechnological applications, such as, for example, production of cellulosic ethanol and cotton fiber processing. ...
Probing the dependence of the properties of cellulose acetates and their films on the degree of biopolymer substitution: use of solvatochromic indicators and thermal analysis
Although cellulose acetates, CAs, are extensively employed there is scant information about the systematic dependence of their properties on their degree of substitution, DS; this is the subject of the present work. Nine ...
Influence of ozonolysis time during sugarcane pretreatment: Effects on the fiber and enzymatic saccharification
Modifications in sugarcane bagasse (SCB) from ozonolysis (O) NaOH (B) and ultrasound (U) (OBU) treatment for cellulosic ethanol production by enzymatic hydrolysis, were evaluated when increasing the exposure time of SCB ...
