Abstract Text

Arundo donax (Giant reed Plant) contains high level of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. It is used as a second generation method for the production of ethanol from lignocellulosic biomasses. Cellulose molecules comprised an unbranched polymer of 1,000 to 1,000,000 D-glucose linking units coupled with beta-1, 4 glycosidic bonds. Microorganism present in beta 1-4 gluconase breaks down the glucosidic linkage in the Microcrystalline structure of the cellulose to cellobiose molecules (a glucose dimer have a beta-1, 4 bond). The cellobiose is subsequently broken down into glucose molecules by an enzyme called beta-glucosidase. The scope of this work entails hydrolysis conversion of cellulose to glucose and other value added products using enzymatic (Cellulase)
