  1. G.Release and X.Release are glucose and xylose release (grams per gram feedstock). GX.Release is the release of both carbohydrates. G.Yield and X.Yield are the yields of glucan or xylan, while GX.Yield refers to the sum of the two carbohydrate yields. Yield data are expressed as the fraction of structural carbohydrate released into solution.
