Effect of [EMIM]Ac amount remained in the pretreated lignocellulose on enzymaticsaccharification

The pretreatment to open up or disrupt the cell wall structure of lignocellulosic biomass is an essential process to improve the enzymatic saccharification. Ionic liquids have been used as new green solvents for the pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass to improve enzymatic saccharification. 1-Eethyl-3-methyl imidazolium acetate ([EMIM]Ac) is one of the best ionic liquids for the enzymatic saccharification of lignocellulosic biomass. However, [EMIM]Ac is known to inhibit the activity of enzyme and difficult to be completely removed from the pretreated product. Thus, this study evaluated the effect of the [EMIM]Ac amount remained in the pretreated lignocellulose on enzymatic saccharification by adjusting its amount during washing process with distilled water after pretreatment. The pussy willow (Salix gracilistyla Miq.) was used as lignocellulosic biomass and enzyme was performed using enzyme cocktail with acremonium-derived enzyme (Meiji Seika Co., Tokyo, Japan) and optimash BG (Genencor, Rochester, New york, USA) at 45℃ for 72 hours using shaking incubator.
