In this study, the combined use of Fenton reagent and ultrasound to the pretreatment of microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) for subsequent enzyme hydrolysis was investigated. The morphological analysis showed that the aspect ratio of MCC was greatly reduced after pretreatment. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) and degree of polymerization (DP) analyses showed that(More)
Fenton's reagent, ultrasound, and the combination of Fenton's reagent and ultrasound were used to pretreat rice straw (RS) to increase its enzymatic digestibility for saccharification. The characterization shows that compared with ultrasound, Fenton's reagent pretreatment was more efficient in increasing the specific surface area and decreasing the degree(More)
Rice straw samples were exposed to ultrasound-assisted alkaline (NaOH) pretreatment by using the heat energy dissipated from ultrasonication to increase their enzymatic digestibility for saccharification. The characterization shows that the pretreatment could selectively remove lignin and hemicellulose without degrading cellulose, and increase porosity and(More)
