- ... In this work, the effects of various pretreatments’ parameters on kenaf core fibre were analyzed statistically and optimized using Response Surface Methodology based on the total glucose yield. The chemical compositions of the pretreated fibres were examined to discuss the effect of pretreatment on the fibre hydrolysability comprehensively. The results showed that estimation model for each pretrea ...
