Abstract

A number of papers in this seminar are devoted to the production and characterization of cellulases. This is proper, since the use of cellulases is perhaps the most feasible method of converting cellulose to products that may be used for fuels and chemicals. However, all celluloses from hardwoods and grasses are associated with significant amounts of xylan, a hemicellulose possessing a β-l,4-linked xylose backbone, with branches containing xylose and other pentoses, hexoses, and uronic acids (Figure 1).
