Effect of illumination of cellulase with the visible linearly polarized light upon digestion of cellulose

Anna Konieczna-Molenda

Abstract

Illumination with visible polarized light (VPL) stimulated cellulase in their degradation of cotton cellulose. Enzyme was illuminated at room temperature in a separate vessels then admixed to reactors. Visible, linearly polarized light successfully stimulates cellulase in degradation of long fibers cellulose and microcrystalline cellulose. Hydrolysis of cellulose followed first order kinetics for microcrystalline cellulose and mixed control mechanism for long fibers cellulose. In both cases, increase in the rate of hydrolysis depended on the illumination time. Improved degradation required up to 120 min exposure of the enzyme to visible polarized light.
