Understanding why cellulose resists degradation could lead to cost-effective biofuels

03:40 EDT 6 Jun 2017 | Physorg.COM

A major bottleneck hindering cost-effective production of biofuels and many valuable chemicals is the difficulty of breaking down cellulose—an important structural component of plant cell walls. A recent study addressed this problem by characterizing molecular features that make cellulose resistant to degradation.
