Abstract:

The present study demonstrated the pretreatment of rice straw using deep eutectic solvent (DES), choline chloride:urea and its comparison with acid and alkaline pretreatment. At a solid loading of 10%, choline chloride (ChCl):urea (1:2) was very effective in lignin extraction from rice straw at 45 °C. It is showed that nearly 40% of lignin was separated in a single step. However, enzymatic hydrolysis of pretreated rice straw with crude cellulase enzyme produced from C.cinereaRM-1 showed the reducing sugar yield of 385±8 mg/g with a saccharification efficiency of 31.5±2.5 % in 48 h at 10 % solids loading.
