In this study, trypsin (Enzyme Comission 3.4.21.4) was immobilized in a low cost, lignocellulosic support (corn cob powder—CCP) with the goal of obtaining peptides with bioactive potential from cheese whey. The pretreated support was activated with glyoxyl groups, glutaraldehyde and IDA-glyoxyl. The immobilization yields of the derivatives were higher than(More)
Lignins were extracted from different species using organosolv process (ethanol/water). Obtained organosolv lignins were characterised by various methods to determine their composition, structure and functional groups with the purpose of evaluating their potential use for obtaining value-added compounds. The purity of organosolv lignins was determined. The(More)
In this work, cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) were obtained from flax fibers by an acid hydrolysis assisted by sonochemistry in order to reduce reaction times. The cavitation inducted during hydrolysis resulted in CNC with uniform shapes, and thus further pretreatments into the cellulose are not required. The obtained CNC exhibited a homogeneous morphology(More)
The development of value-added lignin products from industrial residues of pulping is still a challenge. The present study was aimed to use oil obtained from organosolv lignin by base-catalyzed depolymerization at 300 °C for 40 min as a wood-protecting agent. First, the bio-oil was diluted to 1 wt% into an acetone and water solution, and physicochemical(More)
Organosolv lignin, obtained from olive tree pruning under optimized conditions, was subjected to a hydrothermal depolymerization process catalyzed by sodium hydroxide. The depolymerization of lignin was carried out at 300°C using different reaction times (20, 40, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 min) in order to study the influence of this parameter on lignin(More)
In this study, a new simple method for chemical modification of wood from fast-growing Eucalyptus saligna (blue gum) was tested by a two-step treatment with methacryloyl chloride. The wood samples were submerged in a solution of 10 % methacryloyl chloride in dichloromethane for 15 h and then exposed to three temperatures: air dried, 50 and 100 °C for 2 h.(More)
