Studies on susceptibility of selected pretreated ligninocellulosic materials on enzymic hydrolysis
Languages of publication
Studies described in this paper were conducted in order to determine the dependence between the conditions of ligninocellulosic substrate pretreatment and its suceptibility to enzymic hydrolysis. In view of this, a semi-empirical mathematical model was used to examine the process of enzymic hydrolysis of cellulose by assuming that this reaction proceeds as a sum of two first order reactions with different rates of reactions. The application of quasi-Newtonian equations allowed for the determination of percentage fractions of easily and non-easily hydrolised cellulose in the structures of pretreated substrates.
