We propose to study enzymes for depolymerization of lignocellulosic biomass by means of modern molecular modeling techniques, including classical molecular dynamics and hybrid methods QM / MM , and others. We intend to also study the behavior of nanostructures of native and functionalized cellulose, seeking valorization of biomass by-products.
Lignocellulosic biomass constitutes the largest source of biopolymers on Earth and offers unmatched potential to produce biofuels, materials and valuable chemicals. These biopolymers exhibit resistance against thermal, chemical and enzymatic degradation (biomass recalcitrance) due to its molecular architecture and chemical nature of the polymeric matrices. Comprehending the mechanisms o...
