General description

Cellulose, a β-glucan insoluble in water is an important constituent of plant cell wall. It is a tough, fibrous polysaccharide, which has a linear chain of glucose residues, linked with β-1,4 bond. Plants produces this biopolymer abundantly.

Application

Cellulose (medium fibers) is used in metabolic pathway and carbohydrate applications. Cellulose has been used to study biofuel and biorefinery applications.
Cellulose has been used:
  • for biomass analysis in pyrolysis process
  • in column chromatography to purify organisms from uninfected erythrocytes and white cells
  • as a standard in fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) to study conformational characteristics of bacterial cellulose (BC) obtained from Hestrin-Schramm (HS) medium
  • as a control in diet-related animal studies to evaluate the hypocholesterolemic activity of botryosphaeran
High purity cellulose powders for partition chromatography.

Packaging

In this paper, we report the fabrication of highly conductive poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)-poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS)/cellulose nanofiber (CNF) nanocomposite paper with excellent flexibility through post-treatment with an organic solvent. The post-treated PEDOT:PSS/CNF porous nanocomposite papers showed a lower sulfur content, indicating the removal of...

The kinetic and energy productions of pyrolysis of a lignocellulosic biomass were investigated using a three-parallel Gaussian distribution method in this work. The pyrolysis experiment of the pine sawdust was performed using a thermogravimetric-mass spectroscopy (TG-MS) analyzer. A three-parallel Gaussian...

Chitinase from T. kodakarensis (TkChiA) catalyzes the hydrolysis of chitin. The enzyme consists of two catalytic and three binding domains (ChBD1, ChBD2 and ChBD3). ChBD2 and ChBD3 can bind to not only chitin but also cellulose. In both domains, the intervals...
