Abstract

The hemicellulase separated from birchwood by steaming and water extraction comprised mainly of acetyl- and 4-O-methyglucurono-substituted xylo-oligomers. The liberation of the acidic side groups affected the rate and yield of the enzymatic hydrolysis of the xylo-oligomers. The hemicellulase of Trichoderma reesei was superior to that of Aspergillus awamori both with respect to side group cleavage and xylose yield in hydrolysis.
