Evaluation of Toxicity and Biodegradability of Cholinium Amino Acids Ionic Liquids
The low toxicity and high biodegradability of these novel [Ch][AA] ILs make them promising candidates for use as environmentally friendly solvents in large-scale applications.
Novel renewable ionic liquids as highly effective solvents for pretreatment of rice straw biomass by selective removal of lignin
These bio‐ILs performed as well as or better than previously investigated non‐renewable ILs, and thus present a new and environmentally friendly way to pretreat lignocellulose for production of fermentable sugars and total utilization of the biomass.

A new xylanase gene, xynAS9, was cloned from Streptomyces sp. S9, which was isolated from Turpan Basin, China. The full-length gene consists of 1,395 bp and encodes 465 amino acids including 38
A xylanase with high pH stability from Streptomyces sp. S27 and its carbohydrate-binding module with/without linker-region-truncated versions
The results indicate that the CBM of XynAS27 plays a key role in the hydrolysis of insoluble substrate, and theCBM and linker region are also important for the enzyme stability, and a short Gly/Pro-rich linking region contributes more.
Renewable bio ionic liquids‐water mixtures‐mediated selective removal of lignin from rice straw: Visualization of changes in composition and cell wall structure
After pretreatment with 50% ILs‐water mixtures, the enzymatic digestion of the lignocellulosic biomass was enhanced significantly, thus leading to satisfactory sugar yields of >80% for glucose and approximately 50% for xylose.
Enhancement of the antimicrobial activity of cinnamon essential oil-loaded electrospun nanofilm by the incorporation of lysozyme
Essential oils (EOs) are effective antimicrobial agents against a variety of foodborne pathogens; however, their peculiar flavor limits their applications in food preservation. Smaller amounts of EOs
Gene Cloning, Expression, and Characterization of a Family 51 α-l-Arabinofuranosidase from Streptomyces sp. S9
An α-l-arabinofuranosidase gene, abf51S9, was cloned from Streptomyces sp. S9 and successfully expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). The full-length gene consisted of 1,506 bp and encoded 501
