A functional lignin-based material, lignocresol, was synthesized from eucalyptus wood meal by using phase separation treatment with p-cresol and 72% sulfuric acid. Lignocresol physically adsorbs Trichoderma reesei cellulase and functions as an immobilized cellulase. Lignocresol-immobilized cellulase was treated with acetone or ethanol to separate the enzyme… CONTINUE READING
