Main Article Content


Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a species of yeast. It has been instrumental in winemaking, baking, and brewing since ancient times. The present study was performed to produce lignin degrading enzymes to degrade lignocellulosic substrates and to produce ethanol using Saccharomyces cerevisiae by performing FTIR method. The yeast culture Saccharomyces cerevisiae was isolated and screened for the production of lignolytic enzymes. Then it was pretreated to produce lignocellulosic substrates. Lignocellulosic materials are considered the most abundant renewable resource available for the production of ethanol by FTIR method. The present study concluded the utilization of lignocellulosic biomass for ethanol production in future.
