Enzyme accessibility plays an important role in controlling the rate of conversion of cellulose to glucose in biomass. The goal of this study is to measure the cellulose accessibility due to the effect of dilute acid pretreatment (DAP) and enzymatic hydrolysis (EH) time of Populus biomass. The NMR cryoporometry technique was applied to measure pore size distribution and pore volume over a wide range of pore sizes (range from 0 to 10 000 A) for both pretreated and enzymatically hydrolyzed biomass...
