- The study based on pretreatment, hydrolyzation and separation processes with the raw material rice hull, provides a comprehensive utilization of the hydrolyzed productions, such as glucose (CâHââOâ) from cellulose, silica (SiOâ), and byproduct crystalline sodium sulfate (NaâSOâÂ·10HâO). The optimum hydrolysis conditions are as follows: the concentration of HâSOâ is 72% (wt.%), the temperature is 50Â°C, the ratio of HâSOâ solution volume (mL) to the rice hull mass (g) is 10:1 and the time is 5min, the glucose yield rate reaches 45.6% (wt.%). The concentration of glucose solution could be 0.1g/mL after neutralization measured by ultraviolet spectrophotometer (UVâVIS). Silica powder was below 50nm characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The main byproduct crystalline sodium sulfate was featured by XRD and photographs.
