Influence of physico-chemical changes on enzymatic digestibility of ionic liquid and AFEX pretreated corn stover.

Abstract

Ionic liquid (IL) and ammonia fiber expansion (AFEX) pretreatments were studied to develop the first direct side-by-side comparative assessment on their respective impacts on biomass structure, composition, process mass balance, and enzymatic saccharification efficiency. AFEX pretreatment completely preserves plant carbohydrates, whereas IL pretreatment… (More)
