Abstract

Biogenic silica was extracted from sugarcane leaves through an organic acid thermo-chemical treatment method. Two sugarcane leaves batches were investigated: one batch with a midrib and the other without the midrib. Both produced amorphous silica with high purity (> 90 % (m/m) silica) but their textural properties were distinctly different. The sugarcane… (More)
