Chemoenzymatic separation of softwood polymers

Spruce wood chips were chemically pre-treated with sodium hydroxide to open up the compact structure of wood. The wood was then treated with enzymes (xylanase, gamanase and mannanase) and subjected to extraction with a mixture of methanol and alkali to efficiently isolate lignin and hemicelluloses. Chemical pre-treatment improved enzyme efficiency which consequently enhanced the extraction of lignocelluloses with higher average molar mass than the references.
