Tuesday, May 1, 2007: 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Grand Ball Room (Adams Mark Hotel)
Session STB: Special Topic B: Compositional and structural analysis of biomass
Invited presentations will highlight advances in the accuracy, precision, comprehensiveness, and cost of characterizing the structure and composition of lignocellulosic feedstocks, process intermediates and residues. Topic include, conversion of forage methods to fuels methods, tools for investigating cell wall limitations to enzymatic degradation, methods for customizing enzyme cocktails for biomass, new techniques for the analysis of carbohydrates, analytical methods that enhance our understanding of pretreatment, improved methods for monitoring process intermediates, and published standard analytical methods for biomass conversion processes.
