|Title:||Conversion of cellulose into reducing sugar by solution plasma process (SPP)|
|Citation:||Carbohydrate Polymers. Vol.172, (2017), 230-236|
|Abstract:||© 2017 Elsevier Ltd In the present study, cellulose colloids are treated with the solution plasma process in order to prepare reducing sugar. The investigated parameters are treatment time, type of electrodes, and applied pulse frequency of the bipolar supply. The reducing sugar was characterized by DNS method and the%yield of total reducing sugar (TRS) was then calculated. The crystal structure and chemical structure of plasma-treated cellulose was measured by XRD and FT-IR, respectively. The%yield of TRS was greatly enhanced by solution plasma treatment using Fe electrode. SEM and TEM micrograph indicated that Fe electrode yield the incidental Fe nanoparticles, hypothesized to catalyze the cellulose degradation during SPP treatment. The crystal structure of cellulose was destroyed. Solution plasma treatment of cellulose using Fe electrode at the high applied frequency pulse provided the highest%TRS.|
