NEW RESEARCH PAPER. MAXIMIZATION OF MONOMERIC C5 SUGARS FROM WHEAT BRAN BY USING MESOPOROUS ORDERED SILICA CATALYSTS

The hydrolysis process of a real fraction of arabinoxylans derived from wheat bran was studied. The influence of catalyst type and loading, reaction time and different metal cations were discussed in terms of the hydrolysis yield of arabinose and xylose oligomers as well as the formation of furfural as degradation product. A high yield of […]

[Paper]: Hydrothermal fractionation of grape seeds in subcritical water to produce oil extract, sugars and lignin

The fractionation of grape seeds as a model biomass was studied using a combination of two processes: solvothermal extraction using ethanol and hydrothermal fractionation-autohydrolysis process in a semicontinuous reactor using subcritial water. Around 70% of the polyphenols were extracted in the first step and close to 80% of the sugars in the second step.
