Research Project: Effects of densification on subsequent pretreatment for enzymatic saccharification of biomass

  • Study effects of densification on subsequent pretreatment (dilute acid, alkali) for enzymatic saccharification of biomass (cereal straw, soft wood, hard wood).

  • The physicochemical analyses include chemical composition, surface properties, cellulose accessibility, crystallinity of cellulose, characterization of lignin, sugar release.

  • The techniques applied involve ATR-FTIR, low field NMR, 2D HSQC-NMR, 13C NMR, GPC, HPLC, Simons’ staining, water retention value.
