|Title of the thesis:||Deep eutectic solvents and their use in the fractionation of biomass|
|Summary:||The principles of green chemistry occupy a strategic place in the plant biomass processing technology. The development of efficient and environmentally benign technologies has attracted the interest in modern chemistry. Deep eutectic solvents are part of these technologies because they present the environmentally friendly a sustainable alternative to the convential organic solvents. Due to the possibility of the formation of eutectic solvent there is a wide variety of combinations of different substances which can usefully manipulate their properties. They have been found to be a suitable for the dissolution of biopolymers and for the pretreatment of plant biomass.
This work is studying the properties of eutectic solvents and their applitaction in plant biomass treatment in order to dissolve biopolymers. The work offers the information about physicochemical properties of deep eutectic solvents consist of choline chloride, aminoacids and organic acids. During the application on biomass, the effect of individual solvents on polysaccharides and lignin is monitored, and the efficiency of the process is evaluated.
The obtained results are novel and important in the area of alternative plant biomass treatment.
