|Title: ||KINETICS OF ACID HYDROLYSIS OF MILLET COBS FOR GLUCOSE PRODUCTION|
|Authors: ||AKANDE ABUBAKAR, IDRIS|
|Issue Date: ||23-Jul-2013|
|Abstract: ||The objective of this work is to investigat~ ,the kinetics of acid hydrolysis of cellulose from
. . I
millet to obtain glucose. The cellulose used was obtained from millet cob, and the sal,n ple ,
was collected from Gurara Village, Bida road Niger State. Pretreatment- like milling,
removal of extractives and lignin isolation was carried out to increase the accessibility of
. "~ hydrolyzing acid to the cellulose. Hydrolysis was carried out using concentrated sulphuric
acid of molarities ranging from 4 M t07 M and temperature ranging from 65°C to 8Q °c.
Glucose yield produced were found to increase with acid concentration at ,all temperatures
investigated. A kinetic analysis showed that the rate of glucose production can·· be
described by a first order kinetics with activation energy of 55.4789 KJ/gmol.|
