From: Gaseous ammonia pretreatment lowers the required energy input for fine milling-enhanced enzymatic saccharification of switchgrass

Fig. 8

a, b and c Monomeric glucose and xylose yields at 72 h of enzymatic saccharification of gaseous ammonia and subsequently attritor-milled switchgrass from Fig. 6 compared to the coherent domain size determined by wide-angle X-ray diffraction. In figures a, b and c, the coherent domain size is plotted to the first, second and third powers, respectively. The numbers above the plotted points are the attritor milling times in hours. Saccharification was carried out as in Fig. 6. The size of the symbols are representative of the standard deviations on both axes
