- ... Switchgrass hemicellulose can be converted into sugars, such as xylose, for biobased product manufacturing. However, during pretreatment, the hemicellulose can also be converted into xylose oligomers, furfural and formic acid, which are detrimental to subsequent enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation. Pretreatment conditions that maximize xylose production from hemicellulose, while also minimizing ...
