Bioconversion of Hemicellulose

Lignocellulose, the major component of biomass, makes up about half of the matter produced by photosynthesis. It consists of three types of polymers – cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin – that are strongly intermeshed and chemically bonded by non-covalent forces and by covalent cross-linkages. The chemistry of cellulose can be dated back to 1838 when it was believed that the cell wall of plants is not made of one uniform chemical substance but peculiar to each species. But the subsequent works,
