pretreatment of sugarcane bagasse hydrolysate to eliminate toxic compounds unsuitable for use as growth medium in xylitol production. optimization of adsorption time, type odf acid used, concentration and charcoal leads to a high ratio of xylose reductase, EC1.1.1.21, to xylitol dehydrogenase, EC1.1.1.9, of 4.5

homochiral 3-hydroxy-4-substituted beta-lactams serve as precursors to the corresponding alpah-hydroxy-beta-amino acids, the enzyme might be useful insynthesis of these key components of many biologically and therapeutically important compounds
