Abstract

The full energy utilization of sugar cane should be linked with the current biorefinery concept, which allows the conversion of biomass, besides the production of sugar and ethanol in various chemical products with high added value. Sugar and ethanol plants have on their plants, two residues (bagasse and vinasse) that can generate products with high added value. These wastes, bagasse has been used in the production of electricity and recent research shows its viability in the production of second generation ethanol. However, vinasse until now, has been used only as fertilizers in their own plantations cane sugar. Vinasse is a product of the distillation of ethanol being produced in a proportion which may range 11 to 18 liters per liter of distilled alcohol. This residue, consisting mainly of polyols, carboxylic acids and amino acids in significant concentrations, has attracted little attention as meaning transform vinasse as a significant industrial importance. The development of new methods for the determination of compounds with high added value is essential for the sugarcane mills can reclaim what is now considered waste. Among these new methods of determination, those using electrochemical sensors and electrochemical detectors coupled with separation techniques has distinguished itself by presenting high sensitivity, great selectivity, speed of analysis, which is very attractive options for the analysis of these compounds. For this reason, the aim of this project is to develop new methods for determination of compounds of high value added originating from vinasse of cane sugar. Thus, the project has the following objectives: a) development of new electrochemical sensors based on molecularly imprinted polymers anchored on graphene for determination of polyols in vinasse and b) development of new electrochemical sensors based on metallic nanoparticles anchored on graphene, coupled the chromatographic technique for determining carboxylic acids and amino acids vinasse.
