ABSTRACT


Attention has been paid to the
interactions of selected transition metal salts [Co (II), Cr(III), Cr(VI), Cu (II), Fe(III), Mn (II), Ni(II), Zn] as catalysts of the thermal degradation of barley, oat, rye,
triticale and wheat grains to volatile products. Superior degradation
of the barley grains occurred in the presence of Cu(II) ions. Degradation of
oat starch proceeded best with the Co(II) ions. The Ni(II) ions were superior
catalyst for the degradation of triticale and rye grains. Degradation of the
wheat grains proceeded most efficiently with the Mn(II) ions.

Key words: biofuels, carbonizate, non-nutritional crop utilization, polysaccharides,.
