Scanning electron microscopic (SEM) analysis of SB showing surface images (a) Natural (b) SCAA-SB (c) After enzymatic hydrolysis (EH-SB). Natural SB showed rough and compact surface with extractives. SCAA-SB showed smooth and disrupted surface with several pores. EH-bagasse showed maximum heterogeneous nature of surface revealing the destruction of cellulose.
