    Abstract : Hemicellulose is the second most abundant component in wood and is an important renewable resource  that is used in films, paper composites and biofuels.  Hemicelluloses  have  several  advantages,  including  their abundance,  degradability  and  renewability. READ MORE

  3. 3. Isolation, characterization and enzymatic hydrolysis of water-soluble wood polysaccharides

    Author : Jon Lundqvist; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; size exclusion chromatography; beta-mannosidase; beta-mannanase; endoglucanase; ethyl hydoxyethyl cellulose; metabolism; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Metabolism; microwave irradiation; O-acetyl-galactoglucomannan; isolation;

    Abstract : The need for new renewable products has enhanced the interest in cellulose and hemicellulose as raw material. The wood plant cell wall is a complex mixture of cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin and minor amounts of pectin, proteins and extractives. Several interactions between the compounds make them difficult to separate without modification. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hemicellulose as barrier material

    Author : Hartman Jonas; Ann-Christine Albertsson; Gunnar Henriksson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hemicellulose; galactoglucomannan; plasma surface treatment; vaporphase grafting; benzylation; contact angle; oxygen permeability; solution casting; Cellulose and paper engineering; Cellulosa- och pappersteknik;

    Abstract : Polysaccharides constitute an important source of raw materials for the packaging industry today. Polysaccharides have good natural barrier properties which are necessary for packaging films. Cellulose is the forerunner among renewable polymers for such applications. Hemicelluloses represent a new interesting breed of barrier materials. READ MORE
