- ... Macroalgae are increasingly regarded as a potential feedstock for sustainable biobutanol production. However, macroalgae cell-wall polysaccharides must be properly pretreated for subsequent efficient enzymatic hydrolysis to fermentable sugar. The effects of different chemicals (H2SO4 and NaOH), chemical concentrations (1–9% (w v−1) H2SO4), pretreatment temperatures (95 °C and 121 °C), and times (3 ...
