Estimating wood degradation and lignin loss by direct photometric measurements during decay of sawdust samples by the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium


Comptes Rendus de l' Academie d' Agriculture de France 77(2): 171-177
Estimating wood degradation and lignin loss by direct photometric measurements during decay of sawdust samples by the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium
Beech sawdust in agar was subjected to biodegradation by Phanerochaete chrysosporium. Bleaching of the substrate was accompanied by an increase in light transmission, which was correlated with mass loss and lignin degradation. A simple non-destructive method is described for measuring these two parameters.
