Samples of Eucalyptus globulus wood were subjected to sequential treatments of delignification and swelling, and the solid residues were hydrolysed with a cellulase complex deficient in beta-glucosidase activity. In experiments carried out at 45 degrees C, the highest cellulose conversion (61.9%) was achieved in media containing 28 filter paper units/g… CONTINUE READING
