Mn/ZSM-5 Participated in Degradation of Cellulose
It was presented a Fenton-like catalyst Mn/ZSM-5 to evaluate its activities in degradation of cellulose in this paper. The degree of polymerization (DP) and crystalline degree of cellulose were sharply decreased with 87% and 33.6% after the degradation. Some soluble sugars and small molecular chemicals were detected. The suggested mechanism reflecting the degradation process was proposed.
