Yield profiles at 110°C, α =0. Model yield profiles produced by fitting to only the experimental xylose curve (dashed) and the full set of experimental xylo-oligomer profiles (xylose, oligomers and furfural) (solid). Model results are compared to experimental data (symbol). Key: Xylose (black circle), i=2 (red diamond), i=3 (blue star), i=4 (red violet triangle), i=5 (green square), i=6 (grey asterisk), furfural (orange multiplication sign).
