Grasses cell wall consist of cellulose surrounded by glucuronoarabinoxylan (GAX), high levels of ferulic acid (FA) and p-coumaric acid (pCA), and lignin. The FA and pCA content is one of the factors which contribute to the recalcitrance of the cell wall hindering the process for obtaining the polysaccharides used in the bioenergy industry. Since 2007, functional characterization of BAHD...
The sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) is among the species that produces more ethanol from accumulated sucrose (40%) in mature plant. However, from a bioenergy point of view, two third of the carbons of sugarcane are not used for the production of bioethanol. One of the greatest challenges in the field of bioenergy is to obtain second-generation biofuel from biomass recalcitrance of the plant ...
