Enhanced enzymatic hydrolysis of sugarcane bagasse by N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide pretreatment.

Abstract

The cellulose dissolution solvent used in Lyocell process for cellulose fiber preparation, N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide (NMMO) monohydrate, was demonstrated to be an effective agent for sugarcane bagasse pretreatment. Bagasse of 20wt% was readily dissolved in NMMO monohydrate at 130 degrees C within 1h. After dissolution, bagasse could be regenerated by rapid… (More)
