CANILHA, Larissa; CARVALHO, Walter; FELIPE, Maria das Graças Almeida  and  SILVA, João Batista de Almeida e. Xylitol production from wheat straw hemicellulosic hydrolysate: hydrolysate detoxification and carbon source used for inoculum preparation. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2008, vol.39, n.2, pp.333-336. ISSN 1517-8382.

Wheat straw hemicellulosic hydrolysate was used for xylitol bioproduction. The use of a xylose-containing medium to grow the inoculum did not favor the production of xylitol in the hydrolysate, which was submitted to a previous detoxification treatment with 2.5% activated charcoal for optimized removal of inhibitory compounds.

Keywords : Wheat straw hemicellulosic hydrolysate; Hydrolysate detoxification; Inoculum preparation; Candida guilliermondii; Xylitol production.
