Cellulose Isolation Methodology for NMR Analysis of Cellulose Ultrastructure

  title={Cellulose Isolation Methodology for NMR Analysis of Cellulose Ultrastructure},
  author={Marcus B. Foston and Chistopher A. Hubbell and Art J. Ragauskas},
In order to obtain accurate information about the ultrastructure of cellulose from native biomass by 13C cross polarization magic angle spinning (CP/MAS) NMR spectroscopy the cellulose component must be isolated due to overlapping resonances from both lignin and hemicellulose. Typically, cellulose isolation has been achieved via holocellulose pulping to remove lignin followed by an acid hydrolysis procedure to remove the hemicellulose components. Using 13C CP/MAS NMR and non-linear line-fitting… CONTINUE READING
