  journal={Natural Product Communications},
Cellulose was extracted from the roots, stems and stem tips of Salicornia brachiata Roxb. Each crude cellulose sample obtained was fractionated into α- and β-celluloses. The yields of crude cellulose from the stems and stem tips were greatest and lowest, respectively, while the yields of α- and β-celluloses were in the order, roots > stems > stem tips. The cellulose samples were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), solid state cross polarisation magic angle spinning… Expand
Chemical studies on the polysaccharides of Salicornia brachiata.
These polysaccharides were found to be heterogeneous and highly branched (glycoside linkage analysis, size-exclusion chromatography, (13)C-NMR, FT-IR, circular dichroism and optical rotation data). Expand
Cellulose Contents of Some Abundant Indian Seaweed Species
The combined studies highlight that Chaetomorpha aerea, Acrosiphonia orientalis, Caulerpa taxifolia, Sargassum tenerrimum, Hydroclathrus clathratus and Gelidiella acerosa possess relatively high cellulose contents, which could be of potential utility. Expand
Cellulose-based spreadable new thixo gels: synthesis and their characterization
Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) based new thixotropic gels were synthesized by a facile microwave-induced reaction of aminobenzoic acids (ABAs) e.g. para- and meta-aminobenzoic acids. Cellulose of theExpand
A hyperaccumulation pathway to hierarchically porous carbon nanosheets from halophyte biomass for wastewater remediation
Abstract Sustainable and eco-friendly production is vital to meet the ever-increasing demand for porous carbon materials. We propose a single step process to obtain porous carbon nanosheets (CNS) byExpand
Facile synthesis of a new fluorogenic metal scavenging interpolymeric diamide based on cellulose and alginic acids.
PGA monoamide exhibited superior heavy metal ions [Pb(II) and Hg(II)] uptake properties to the diamide, the former showing optimum adsorptions of ions 398.8 and 282.8mg/g, respectively. Expand
Evolution structurale et fonctionnelle des communautés microbiennes digestives sous l'influence de facteurs biotiques et abiotiques. Développement d'une biopuce ADN ciblant les gènes impliqués dans la dégradation des glucides complexes alimentaires
La degradation des fibres alimentaires est une fonction essentielle des ecosystemes digestifs microbiens. Chez le ruminant, elle est assuree par des bacteries, champignons et protozoaires capables deExpand


Profiling of cellulose content in Indian seaweed species.
It appears that agarophytic and alginophytic algae contain high cellulose and alpha-cellulose contents, while the carrageenophyte contains low cellulose. Expand
On the determination of crystallinity and cellulose content in plant fibres
A comparative study of cellulose crystallinity based on the sample crystallinity and the cellulose content in plant fibres was performed for samples of different origin. Strong acid hydrolysis wasExpand
Physicochemical characterization of cellulose from perennial ryegrass leaves (Lolium perenne).
The cellulose samples isolated from both de-juiced ryegrass leaves and the untreated leaves had a much lower percent crystallinity than that from wood-based fibres and had much shorter fibres than those of either cereal straws, bagasse or wood. Expand
Oil analysis in seeds of Salicornia brachiata
Abstract Oil analysis in seeds of Salicornia brachiata was carried out in the current study. Hexane extraction yielded maximum oil content from seeds (22.4%). High ester (538.32 mg/g) andExpand
Physico-chemical and thermal characterization of cellulose from barley straw
Abstract Sequential treatments of dewaxed barley straw with 1.5% H 2 O 2 at pH 12.0 for 14 h at 40 °C under various ratios of straw to extractant and with 80% acetic acid–70% nitric acid (10/1, v/v)Expand
Combined infrared and electron diffraction study of the polymorphism of native celluloses
Cellulose samples of various origins were subjected to heat annealing. The initial samples contained various proportions of Iα (triclinic) and Iβ (monoclinic) phases. They could be classified intoExpand
Chemical Structure of Residual Lignin from Kraft Pulp
Structural characteristics of wood lignin and residual lignin in conventional and modified kraft pulps were examined employing elemental and methoxyl analysis and 13C, 1H, and 31P-NMR. The structuralExpand
Moisture sorption by cellulose powders of varying crystallinity.
The structure of cellulose should be thoroughly considered when manufacturing low moisture grades of MCC, as it could be associated with filling of the large pore volume of the cellulose powder of highest crystallinity. Expand
