Lignocellulosic biomass as a renewable and valuable resource has been a very active research area during recent years. Ionic liquids (ILs) are an attractive approach for the pretreatment of lignocelluloses. In this work, a series of pyrrolidinium-based ionic liquids were prepared simply and were investigated for the pretreatment of corn stalk at 90 °C for 30 min. The characteristics of regenerated lignin and cellulose-rich materials were determined by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy… CONTINUE READING
