From: Combining the effects of process design and pH for improved xylose conversion in high solid ethanol production from Arundo donax

Solid composition (% of WIS)
  Average Std dev
Glucan 48.2 0.2
Xylan 3.8 0.0
Galactan n.da -
Arabinan n.d -
Mannan n.d -
Lignin 41.7 0.0
Soluble components (g L −1 )
Sugars Monomers Total sugars (including monomers)
Glucose 2.5 14.2
Xylose 4.0 18.4
Galactose n.d n.d
Arabinose n.d n.d
Mannose n.d n.d
Inhibitors and degradation products   
Acetic Acid 5.6

  1. an.d. = not detected, i.e. below detection limit.
  2. The solid composition is based on wt-% of the WIS content and the soluble components are reported in g L−1 liquid. The WIS content of the pretreated material was measured to 22.5 wt-%.
