To further investigate the effect of dilute acid pretreatment (DAP) and steam explosion pretreatment (SE) on the change in cellulose accessibility, several techniques were applied including a Simons' stain (SS) technique along with several NMR methods (i.e., NMR cryoporometry, (1)H spin-lattice (T1) and (1)H spin-spin (T2) relaxometry, and diffusometry). These methods were utilized to probe biomass porosity and thus assess cellulose accessibility on untreated and pretreated Populus. In general… CONTINUE READING
