In order to establish the correlation between hemicelluloses removal and bioconversion efficiency of cellulose, fractionation process with increasing NaOH concentration selectively released the hemicellulosic polymers with increasing molecular weight and decreasing degree of substitution. Not only the initial hydrolysis rates also the concentrations of glucose and ethanol were significantly enhanced from 5.93 and 8.39 g/L to the range of 8.67-9.60 g/L and 11.53-13.71 g/L after alkaline… CONTINUE READING
