  • Oldendorf, W.H. Brain uptake of radiolabeled amino acids, amines, and hexoses after arterial injection.

  • Yeasts have many convenient characteristics, such as the ability to use a wide variety of substrates such as hexoses, pentoses, and hydrocarbons (8; 9); susceptibility to induced and genetic variation (10), ability to flocculate

    Chapter 7

  • Cellulose-containing raw materials should contain 50-60 percent hydrolyzable polysaccharides, preferably high in hexoses so that a 4050 percent yield of fermentable sugars can be attained.

    2 Biomass Sources

  • As explained earlier, dilute acid hydrolysis is very effective in breaking the glycosidic linkages between component hexoses, but it also breaks down the sugar hexose units.

    3 Ethanol Production

  • Research on raw materials has taken two broad avenues: first, research aimed at increasing the efficiency of producing fermentable hexoses from lignocellulose, the most ubiquitous and cheapest raw material; and second, identifying new plant sources that could be used for their sugar content, such as high-yielding varieties of palm (nipa, caryota), grasses, and fruits.

    Chapter 4

  • Candida utilis has been used for alcohol and feed yeast production from paper mill waste because it has a high tolerance for sulphite and can convert both hexoses and pentoses into yeast protein.

    Chapter 5

  • This observation has been made in other organisms (11), and the dual activity of the cellulase enzymes would account for the simultaneous accumulation of pentoses and hexoses.

    Chapter 11

  • Reciprocal syntheses between different hexoses by isomerization and then between pentoses, hexoses, and heptoses by reaction of degradation and synthesis proved the value of the systematics he had established.

    Emil Fischer - Biography

  • _ -- The _aldoses_ are fully esterified, in the pentoses 4 OH, in the hexoses 5 OH groups reacting.
