Pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass associated with the autoxidation of ethanol to acetal

Author affiliations

Abstract

Lignocellulosic biomass was effectively delignified by aerobic oxidation in ethanol. During the process, ethanol was partially oxidized to acetal, a promising fuel additive, and other oxygenates. The resulting pulp could then be enzymatically converted into sugars in good yields for ethanol production.
