Chirality-specific hydrolysis of amino acid substrates by cellulose nanofibers

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate for the first time that cellulose nanofibers obtained from natural sources have the capability to hydrolyze the amide bonds of amino acid substrates in a chirality-specific manner. The chiral specificities were clearly correlated with the species of amino acid units and the crystal structures of cellulose.
