Including glucose, xylose , mannose , Arabia sugar And galactose etc., Monosaccharide Among the polymers respectively covalent bond , hydrogen bond , ether and ester linkages, and they Extensin And other structural protein, enzyme, cellulose and wall pectin A cell wall with certain hardness and elasticity, and has stable chemical structure. It is from the total cellulose
In general the polysaccharide components 17.5%NaOH and 24%KOH extracted, and there is no specific chemical structure of the corresponding. Alkali extraction liquor with acetic acid neutralization precipitation is part of hemicellulose A with ethanol supernate is part of hemicellulose B. As an important polysaccharide in Xylan , glucan , Arabia xylan , Grape Mannan , Arabia galactosan Neutral polysaccharide.

Hemicellulose Hydrophilic

Hemicellulose with hydrophilic properties, which will cause the cell wall swelling, with elastic fiber. In the sheet forming process for fiber structure and inter fiber Binding force . Therefore, the influence of the adding of hemicellulose adsorbed on the surface of fibers, have influence on the strength of paper. pulp Retain or join in favor of Hemicellulose beating This is because, more easily than cellulose hemicellulose hydration swelling, hemicellulose adsorption to cellulose, increase the fiber swelling and elastic grinding, instead of being cut off the fine fiber, it can reduce the strength of pulp beating energy consumption, get ideal.

Hemicellulose Form

Hemicellulose executive summary

Hemicellulose (hemicellulose): refers to the plant cell wall and symbiosis, soluble cellulose alkali dissolve
In case of acid liquid, after much more easy to that part of the hydrolysis of plant cellulose polysaccharide. A plant usually contains several by two or three Sugar Semi cellulose, the chemical structure of the same. The hemicellulose content of tree stems, branches, roots and bark and composition is also different. Therefore, hemicellulose is the name for a class of substances.
A sugar based hemicellulose are D- based, D- based, xylose mannose D glucose, D- galactose, L- Arabia, 4-O- -D- glycosyl methyl glucuronide, D- galacturonic acid group and D- glucuronide, L- and a small amount of rhamnose, fucose and L-. Hemicellulose is mainly divided into three categories, namely poly xylose Class, poly and poly saccharide grape Mannan Galactose Grape nectar sugar.

Hemicellulose The technology of sugar

1,4- is the -D beta pyranose form xylose backbone, with 4 - methyl - oxygen pyranose glucuronic acid polysaccharide chains. Its structure is as follows:
 Polyxylose structure Polyxylose structure
Type X beta beta -D- pyran type xylosyl; (H3CO) 4GA 4- - pyran type oxygen methyl glucuronide; hardwood A and B are oxygen acetyl; softwood A alpha -L- furan type Arabia sugar, B hydroxyl.
Hardwood and Gramineae Hemicellulose grass is mainly this kind of polysaccharide, polysaccharide in Gramineae hemicellulose, often also contain L furan glycosyl as a branch connection in Arabia polyxylose backbone. How many different plants with branched chain.

Hemicellulose Poly grape nectar sugar

D is composed of mannose glucopyranose base and pyranose base with 1,4- beta type connection into the main chain. Another kind of grape sugar and galactose mannose D - galactopyranose base with branched chain in the form of 1,6- alpha mannose type connection number of D- - and D - pyran type glucopyranose base is on the main chain, their structures are as follows:
 Poly grape mannose structure Poly grape mannose structure
Type G beta beta -D - glucopyranose base; M beta beta -D was mannose pyranose radical; hardwood A and B are hydroxyl groups; softwood A alpha -D - galactopyranose base, B acetyl oxygen.
Softwood hemicellulose with poly galactose mannose carbohydrate based grape. Based on the main chain and glucose mannose Based on the molecular ratio for different kinds of wood between 1:1 to 1:2 changes. Most of the average wood hemicellulose The degree of polymerization Only 200.

Hemicellulose complex

No chemical bond between cellulose and hemicellulose, hydrogen bonding and inter Vander Wa Alsley There.
Hemicellulose and lignin May connect with benzyl ether in the form of lignin carbohydrate complex formation, for example:
 Carbohydrate complex Carbohydrate complex

Hemicellulose source

Hemicellulose widely exists in plants, containing 15% ~ 20% softwood, hardwood and grasses containing from 15% to 35%, but its distribution for plant species, maturity, and earlywood cell types and morphological parts are different. for example Softwood The main hemicellulose is poly Galactose Grape sugar and nectar, hardwood and grasses is the technology of sugar; softwood and hardwood timber radial Cells containing more than cell and fiber cell tube technology in sugar; softwood cell Secondary wall The middle leaves, sugar content is the lowest in the secondary wall and the inner layer is high, and the distribution of poly ctose grape sugar dew on the contrary.
The chemical pulping process any plant material, at the same time in the delignification of hemicellulose can occur or acidic hydrolysis, alkaline hydrolysis, peeling reaction and oxidation reaction, while hemicellulose dissolution and cooking can be adsorbed on the deposition of pulp, but will lose a certain number, greatly influence the properties of semi cellulose and residue the pulp, it can increase the pulp tensile strength, elastic modulus and transparency, but had no effect on the tear strength. In the business Cellulose derivatives With the pulp when required to remove hemicellulose as far as possible.

Hemicellulose application

The industrial utilization of hemicellulose is developing, pulping waste liquor can be extracted and yeast, yeast 10% Ribonucleic acid Then, derived for single phosphate guanosine and inosine monophosphate, can be used as Flavoring agent Or, anticancer agents antiviral Agent. Law is the first use of forest chemicals organic acid The fiber raw material pretreatment hydrolysis Still, the hydrolysis residue can not pre pulping, quality and hydrolysis of pulp comparable to that from the hydrolysate could be isolated from the pentose and hexose components, the xylose After treatment. xylitol That can be used as sweetener, plasticizer, surface active agent for acid; xylose An adhesive ; polyxylose sulfate can be used as anticoagulants.
