Lignocellulosic materials are promising alternative feedstocks for bioethanol production. These materials include agricultural residues, cellulosic waste such as newsprint and office paper, logging residues, and herbaceous and woody crops. However, the recalcitrant nature of lignocellulosic biomass necessitates a pretreatment step to improve the yield of fermentable sugars. The overall goal of this dissertation is to expand the current state of knowledge on microwave-based pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass.2.2 Pretreatment Microwave based pretreatments were carried out in a general purpose laboratory microwave oven (Panasonic Corporation, model NN-S954). The apparatus provided microwave radiation using inverter technology at variableanbsp;...
