Figure 1

Effect of H 2 O 2 loading during pretreatment on enzymatic hydrolysis yields. Results for (A) glucose and (B) xylose demonstrate that yields approach their saturation values near an H2O2 loading of 50 mg/g of biomass for Cu(bpy)-catalyzed AHP pretreatment. Pretreatment was performed for 24 h at 10% (w/v) solids with catalyzed pretreatment employing 2.0 mM catalyst concentration.
