We thank the USDA for their financial support and for those in the Analytical Chemistry Group for assistance throughout this project. We thank Brian Pultz for supplying SEM and light micrograph images and preparation procedure for the analysis of the cotton samples studied. Andrew Mashchak and Esther Mintzer performed the HPLC analysis of elastase purity. We thank the Science and Engineering Education Department, the Office of Fellowship Programs, and Royace Aiken and Dale Johns of PNNL and the Department of Energy for additional financial support.
