Abstract : The book presents an analysis of the currently existing opinions of the properties and nature of enzymes which split cellulose, plus a discussion of possible mechanisms of their action. Methods are illustrated for selecting the active producers of cellulose and the principles lying at the basis of methods of determining the activity of individual components in the cellulose complex. Results are presented from a study of cultures of fungi which form cellulose. Methods are presented for separating a cellulose preparation and splitting it into its individual components. (Author)
