Soluble arabinogalactan (AG) in larch leads to reagent waste during its biorefining using oxidative pretreatment strategies. A two-stage pretreatment of water pre-extraction followed by alkaline hydrogen peroxide (AHP) pretreatment was investigated to more efficiently convert larch cellulose into glucose, while also obtaining a value-added AG product stream. The results showed that water pre-extraction increases the lignin selectivity of both NaOH and HO reagents, translating to improved lignin removal and enzymatic hydrolysis yields. This was found to be related to cellulose accessibility alongside the effective consumption of the reagents. Moreover, the addition of mannanase also significantly enhanced enzymatic digestibility of pretreated solid from 81.0% to 97.7% (4% HO charge and 180 °C) when 40 U/g mannanase was supplemented with 20 FPU/g cellulase. In all, it was demonstrated that coupling mannanase with cellulase could improve larch's enzymatic digestibility and overall viability for biorefining processes.

In this work, a mild and facile post-extraction using different reagents was evaluated to overcome these recalcitrance for improving the enzymatic digestibility of acid-pretreated bamboo residues by r...
The isoelectric point (pI) of lignin-based surfactant is an important factor in the enhancement on the enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulose. In this work, lignin carboxylate (LC) and quaternary ammo...
Lignocellulosic biomass is a feedstock with the potential to be converted into value-added bioproducts. The use of enzymatic hydrolysis allows the cleavage of lignocellulose into their monomeric units...
Chitin is the second-most abundant bioresource and widely used in the food, agricultural, textile, biomedical, and pharmaceutical industries. However, an efficient, environmentally friendly, and econo...
Microbial biomass and enzyme activity are essential for ecosystem function in managed forests; however, uncertainty remains because microbial biomass and enzymatic responses to thinning highly differ ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of ozonated water on pain, edema and trismus after third molar removal. Patients were submitted to extraction of lower third molar under ir...
When prescribing a prosthetic foot, clinicians face a dizzying array of choices as more than 200 different prosthetic feet are available. While these conventional prosthetic feet primarily...
This prospective observational study aim to evaluate discomforts after extraction of temporary tooth under local anesthesia. The first objective is to describe the prevalence of the post-e...
Death and vascular tears occur in up to 1% of the patients undergoing lead extraction procedures. These complications are due to abnormal force vectors during the procedure. The investigat...
In the context of fetal heart monitoring, the SurFAO project offers an alternative to current clinical routines. The challenge is to extract, from few non-invasive sensors on the maternal ...
Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.
The selective extraction of deciduous teeth during the stage of mixed dentition in accordance with the shedding and eruption of the teeth. It is done over an extended period to allow autonomous adjustment to relieve crowding of the dental arches during the eruption of the lateral incisors, canines, and premolars, eventually involving the extraction of the first premolar teeth.

Extraction of the fetus by means of obstetrical instruments.
An extraction method that separates analytes using a solid phase and a liquid phase. It is used for preparative sample cleanup before analysis by CHROMATOGRAPHY and other analytical methods.
A condition sometimes occurring after tooth extraction, particularly after traumatic extraction, resulting in a dry appearance of the exposed bone in the socket, due to disintegration or loss of the blood clot. It is basically a focal osteomyelitis without suppuration and is accompanied by severe pain (alveolalgia) and foul odor. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
