Abstract : Cellulase activity has been determined in absolute terms for four different cellulases with eighteen different CM-celluloses as substrates. The investigated CM-celluloses rank the enzymic activity in the same order. Conversion factors of enzymic activity from one CM-cellulose to another can thus be calculated. However, a unique relation between these factors and the DS and degree of polymerization (DP) values of the substrates is obscured by some unknown structural characteristic of the substrates.
