Abstract(s)Enzymatic coating of functionalized cellulose fibers with catechol was performed in the presence of Trametes hirsuta laccase. Cellulose functionalization was done by covalent fixation of aromatic amines onto the cellulose surface using a dyeing procedure with C.I. Reactive Black 5 (RB5) followed by reduction with sodium hydrosulfite. Cellulase enzymes were used on coated and control samples to obtain the analytes linked with the soluble sugars in solution, to prove the reaction concepts described in this paper. Hydrolyzed coated-cellulose showed lower concentration of reducing sugars (1188 mg/L) than control samples (2011 mg/L). The structures of these compounds were checked by LC/MS analysis confirming the presence of functionalized glucose and cellobiose units coupled to poly(catechol) molecules (m/z 580 and m/z 633). Alkali extraction method showed to be very promising to coat cellulose fibers with phenols in the presence of enzymes, at mild conditions of temperature and pH.
