Preliminary experiments

In preliminary experiments we did already achieve success with the combination of commercially available enzymes and chemical catalysts. Herein, both catalysts were used to convert xylan to xylitol in water (pH 7) at 80 °C [Steudler S, Hilpmann G, Werner A, Lange R, Bley Th (2014) Hemicellulose disintegration and hydrogenation via chemical and enzymatic catalysts.
