Abstract

SILVA, Adriano Sant'Ana et al. Cellulose hydrolysis by mesoestruturated NiO-MCM-41 and MoO3-MCM-41 catalysts. Quím. Nova [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.4, pp. 683-688. ISSN 0100-4042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422012000400005.

This study was carried out to synthesize, characterize and evaluate the application of mesoestruturated catalysts MCM-41, 5%MoO3-MCM-41 and 5%NiO-MCM-41 in the hydrolysis of microcrystalline cellulose. XRD results indicate that the phase of mesoporous MCM-41 was obtained and that the introduction of metal oxides did not affect this mesoporous phase. About the heterogeneous hydrolysis reaction, it was observed that the increase in temperature results in a higher concentration of glucose and the catalyst 5%MoO3-MCM-41 provides the highest concentrations of glucose.

Keywords : biofuels; mesoporous; glucose.
