Article
Sunflower and rapeseed meals are agro-industrial coproducts that contain high amount of phenolics (1-4 % dry matter), mostly as esters of caffeic acid (CA) and sinapic acid (SA), respectively. The enzymatic hydrolysis of the ester bonds enables to recover the corresponding free phenolic acids that are bioactive compounds and platform molecules for...

Chapter
Second generation bioethanol, i.e., ethanol from lignocellulosic biomass is envisaged as a renewable source of transport fuel in the next years to complement or replace the first generation and the fossil fuel. At present, the most economic solution seems to be the enzymatic way that produces fermentable sugars from cellulose and hemicellulose. To...
Chapter
At the beginning of 2016, first generation bioethanol still contributes to the majority of the 25 billion of gallons’ bioethanol produced worldwide, with the United States and Brazil producing approximately 85 % of the global production predominantly based on corn and sugarcane, respectively. However, concerns over the long-term sustainability of f...

Lactic acid is the building block of poly-lactic acid (PLA), a biopolymer that could be set to replace petroleum-based plastics. To make lactic acid production cost-effective, the production process should be carried out at low pH, in low-nutrient media, and with a low-cost carbon source. Yeasts have been engineered to produce high levels of lactic...

A number of microorganisms, bacteria and filamentous fungi, are able to degrade lignocellulosic components to various extents. However, only a few ones can degrade lignins, among which wood-rotting fungi. White-rot fungi, the most frequent ones, mineralize cell wall components (cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignins) and extensively degrade lignins,...

Laccase–mediator systems have the disadvantage that the mediator is expensive and potentially toxic. In this work, we used N-hydroxyacetanilide (NHA) in combination with laccase for the first time to bleach eucalypt pulp and found it to be a very promising, advantageous alternative to 1-hydroxybenzotriazole (HBT) as mediator. Thus, NHA is efficient...

Tyrosinases are type-3 copper proteins involved in the initial step of melanin synthesis. These enzymes catalyse both the o-hydroxylation of monophenols and the subsequent oxidation of the resulting o-diphenols into reactive o-quinones, which evolve spontaneously to produce intermediates, which associate in dark brown pigments. In fungi, tyrosinase...
