Table 2 Results for total hydrolysis yields obtained from bagasse samples after 48 hours under enzyme action[1]

From: Nuclear magnetic resonance investigation of water accessibility in cellulose of pretreated sugarcane bagasse

Bagasse samples Enzymatic hydrolysis (48 hours)
Total hydrolysis yield, %
Untreated bagasse 22.0 ± 0.3
H 2 SO 4 1% 30.3 ± 0.3
NaOH 0.25% 47.1 ± 0.9
NaOH 0.5% 79 ± 2
NaOH 1% 100 ± 7
NaOH 2% 97 ± 2
NaOH 3% 96 ± 10
NaOH 4% 97 ± 20
  1. Hydrolysis yield values are expressed as an average (± standard deviation) of duplicate determination. All the samples treated with NaOH were previously treated with 1% H2SO4.
