Monocomponent endoglucanase treatment increases the reactivity of softwood sulphite dissolving pulp
2005 (English)In: Journal of Industrial Microbiology & Biotechnology, ISSN 1367-5435, E-ISSN 1476-5535, Vol. 32, no 5, 211-214 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Softwood dissolving pulp was treated with a commercial monocomponent fungal endocellulase. The reactivity of the pulp for the production of rayon and cellulose derivatives as determined with the Fock method increased drastically with relatively low amounts of enzyme, and the yield loss and decrease of viscosity were moderate. The mechanism behind the increased reactivity is discussed.
