Polysaccharides such as agar, guar gum, starch, and xylan were hydrolyzed to produce mono- and oligosaccharides under hydrothermal conditions with and without carbon dioxide in a small batch reactor. The molecular weight distributions of the polysaccharide hydrolyzates shifted to lower molecular weights by increasing the carbon dioxide load, corresponding to higher pressures of carbon dioxide. For example, the yield of glucose produced from the hydrolysis of starch at 200 degrees C was… CONTINUE READING
