Abstract or Summary
  • Biomass pretreatment-derived degradation compounds, such as furfural and 5-hydroxymethyl-furfural (HMF),inhibit the growth of fermentation microorganisms that utilize biomass to produce biofuels and chemicals. Here we report that manganese(III) can degrade furfural and HMF, making them less toxic to microorganisms. Treatment with manganese(III) reduced furfural and HMF concentrations in a dose-dependent manner. Furfural was more readily degraded by manganese(III) than HMF. This work provides an avenue to use manganese(III) to increase the growth-rate of fermentation microrganisms that are inhibited by toxic compounds derived from pretreatment of biomass.
