- ... A high biomass loading in ionic liquid (IL) pretreatments that reduces the total cost of the process is potentially a key technique in biorefining. Previously, we demonstrated that, with microcrystalline cellulose, a higher cellulose loading could lead to improved accessibility and consequently higher hydrolytic reactivity, when catalyzed by an acid. In this study, we expand this concept to the li ...
