The biomass formed by the cane-sugar, is a byproduct of the process of producing sugar and ethanol. In Brazil new applications for the bagasse have been developed, among them we can highlight the production of biofuels (ethanol) second generation. The second-generation ethanol from biomass, bagasse and cane straw, is a way to significantly increase fuel production, The development of processes for the production of second generation ethanol from biomass of cane sugar involves the optimization of an integrated, multi-step: pretreatment, hydrolysis and fermentation of hydrolysates. To evaluate the effectiveness of several alternative processes, is an accurate characterization of key sugars of biomass for conversion to second-generation ethanol. Their work on sugar analysis by HPLC using electrochemical detectors stand out by offering better conditions such as sensitivity, selectivity, detectability and wide applicability. Considering the great importance of the determination of sugars in biomass together with the need to develop new methods for determining rapid, sensitive and selective, this project aims to develop new methodologies for characterizing the composition of sugars for conversion of biomass sugar cane ethanol in the second generation using the technique of high performance liquid chromatography coupled with an electrochemical detector. To achieve the proposed objective, electrochemical detectors should be developed chemically modified electrodes based on carbon nanotubes containing metal oxides as nickel oxide, copper oxide and cobalt oxide for the determination of sugars as arabinose, galactose, glucose, mannose and xylose from biomass of cane (bagasse + straw) for the generation of second-generation ethanol.
