Product DescriptionCellulase refers to a family of enzymes which act in concert to hydrolyze cellulose. Trichoderma reesei has an extensively studied cellulase enzyme complex. This complex converts crystalline, amorphous, and chemically derived celluloses quantitatively to glucose. One Unit releases 0.01 milligrams of glucose per hour from microcrystalline cellulose at 37C, pH 5.0.

" ... Cotton fibers obtained from Indian farm fields were used as a primary source for the enzymatic synthesize of cellulose nanoparticles. The cotton fibers were separated from cotton linkers and stored. The cellulase enzyme (IRWBE005-20866) used in hydrolysis was purchased from Innovative Research, Inc. (Peary Court Novi, MI) ... "
