  1. The glucan and xylan in the soluble fraction were hydrolyzed to monomers with 4% H2SO4. The hot-compressed water (HCW)-treated residue (1%) was hydrolyzed with an enzyme cocktail (40 FPU/g substrate) for 72 hours. The yields of glucose and xylose are calculated based on the glucan and xylan contents, respectively, in the dry weight of untreated biomass. Total yield of hydrolyzed sugars is calculated from the combined contents of glucan and xylan in the dry weight of untreated biomass.
