Article

Summary

The empirical rate expression previously proposed for the hydrolysis of avicel and tissue paper by Meicelase from Trichoderma viride also held for the hydrolysis of dewaxing cotton, Whatmann CF-11, Solka Floc SW-40, tissue paper and 1% NaOH-pretreated sawdust by Meicelase, Trichoderma reesei QM9414 or Cellulosin from Aspergillus nigar.
