Characterization of an acetylated heteroxylan from Eucalyptus globulus Labill.
A heteroxylan was isolated from Eucalyptus globulus wood by extraction of peracetic acid delignified holocellulose with dimethyl sulfoxide and contained galactosyl and glucosyl units attached at O-2 of MeGlcA originating from rhamnoarabinogalactan and glucan backbones, respectively. Expand
Comprehensive study on the chemical structure of dioxane lignin from plantation Eucalyptus globulus wood.
A comprehensive study on the chemical structure of lignin from plantation Eucalyptus globulus Labill revealed a wide molecular weight distribution of lIGNin with the center of gravity of mass distribution around 2500 u. Expand
Enzymatic saccharification of biologically pre-treated wheat straw with white-rot fungi.
The difference in efficiency and selectivity of delignification within the two fungi treatments was interpreted in terms of specific lignolytic enzyme profiles and moderate xylanase and cellulolytic activities. Expand
Chemical characterisation of bark and of alkaline bark extracts from maritime pine grown in Portugal.
Abstract The chemical composition of maritime pine (Pinus pinaster) bark and of alkaline bark extracts has been investigated with bark from trees grown in Portugal. Bark is composed of lignin andExpand
(2-O-α-d-Galactopyranosyl-4-O-methyl-α-d-glucurono)-d-xylan from Eucalyptus globulus Labill
Abstract An unusual heteroxylan composed of galactosyl, 4- O -methyl-glucuronosyl and xylosyl residues with molar ratio 1:3:30 was isolated from the wood of Eucalyptus globulus Labill. The results ofExpand
Chemical Composition of Spent Liquors from Acidic Magnesium–Based Sulphite Pulping of Eucalyptus globulus
Abstract The major components of industrial thin (SSL) and thick (THSL) liquors from acidic magnesium–based sulphite pulping of Eucalyptus globulus wood have been characterized. The analysis ofExpand
Chemical composition of different morphological parts from ‘Dwarf Cavendish’ banana plant and their potential as a non-wood renewable source of natural products
Abstract The study on chemical composition and structure of components from different morphological parts of ‘Dwarf Cavendish’ banana plant (petioles/midrib, leaf blades, floral stalk, leaf sheathsExpand
Structure of hardwood glucuronoxylans : modifications and impact on pulp retention during wood kraft pulping
Abstract The behaviour of different hardwood glucuronoxylans during the kraft pulping process was investigated. Woods and pulps xylans were isolated and characterized by size exclusionExpand
Structural characterization of the lignin from the nodes and internodes of Arundo donax reed.
In situ nodeLignin is more condensed than internode lignin and the former has much more phenolic acids (p-coumaric and ferulic) and less beta-O-4 (0.32 and 0.49 per aromatic unit in node and internode, respectively). Expand
Thermophysical Characterization of Ionic Liquids Able To Dissolve Biomass
Among new potential solvents for lignocellulosic materials, ionic liquids (ILs) are attracting considerable attention. Hence, the knowledge of the thermophysical properties of such fluids isExpand
