Pretreatments for enzymatic saccharification are crucial for the establishment of lignocellulosic biorefineries. In this study, we focused on ammonium ions and peroxometal complexes as potential delignifying agents. We first examined the pretreatment of beech wood with nine different ammonium salts in the presence of H(2)O(2). Significant pretreatment(More)
Neem hull waste (containing a high amount of lignin and other phenolic compounds) was used for lignin peroxidase production byPhanerochaete chrysosporum under solid-state fermentation conditions. Maximum decolorization achieved by partially purified lignin peroxidase was 80% for Porocion Brilliant Blue HGR, 83 for Ranocid Fast Blue, 70 for Acid Red 119 and(More)
The cobalt(II)/ascorbic acid/hydrogen peroxide system was used for decolorization of azo, acridine, anthraquinone, thiazine and triphenylmethane dyes. More than 90% decolorization was obtained with all dyes except Remazol Brilliant Blue R (75%). With other transition metals the system was less efficient. With copper, higher concentration and prolonged(More)
Pollution is viewed as the release of substances and energy as waste product of human activities which result in harmful changes within the natural environment. In the present study water of Chandlodia lake was analyzed for various physico-chemcial parameters. The study was carried out for a period of one year. Montly data’s been collected and were(More)
The reaction system containing Cu(II), hydrogen peroxide and D-arabinono-1,4-lactone was found to be effective in the decolorization and reduction of toxicity of azo, thiazine-, triphenylmethane- and anthraquinone-based synthetic dyes. More than 85% decolorization was obtained with 100ppm Acridine Orange, Azure B, Chicago Sky Blue 6B, Crystal Violet, Evans(More)
An efficient regeneration system, direct and indirect organogenesis, was developed for Curculigo orchioides-an endangered medicinal herb. Shoot multiples were initiated from in vitro grown leaf explants through direct organogenesis on Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) medium containing 1⁄2 strength nitrogen salts and 0.44 μM BA. Almost 10 shoots were obtained per(More)
Selected azo, acridine, triphenyl methane, anthraquinone and thiazine-based dyes were decolorized using a catalytic system consisting of Cu(II)/glucaric acid/H(2)O(2). More than 90% decolorization was obtained with 100 ppm Acridine Orange, Azure B, Chicago Sky Blue, Crystal Violet, Methyl Orange, Poly B-411, Reactive Black 5, Reactive Blue 2, and Remazol(More)
