Kinetics of Formic Acid-catalyzed Cellulose Hydrolysis

Hydrolysis is a reaction to produce sugars from lignocellulosic raw materials for biochemical production. The present study elucidates the hydrolysis of cellulose and formation of glucose decomposition products catalyzed by 5% to 20% (w/w) formic acid at 180 to 220 °C with an initial cellulose conce...
