Table 1 Compositional analysis of pretreated Norway spruce and Loblolly pine

From: Enzymatic degradation of sulfite-pulped softwoods and the role of LPMOs

Substrate Component (% of DM)a
Glucanb Xylanb Mannanb Acid insoluble ligninc
Norway spruce 88.3 4.5 4.8 3.8
Loblolly pine 80.4 3.0 3.0 8.9
Avicel 92.2 2.1 0.1 0.9
  1. Values are presented as a percentage of dry matter
  2. aThe presence of the potentially inhibitory sugar derivatives furfural and hydroxymethylfurfural was also analyzed; both were not detected
  3. bSugar monomers measured by HPLC and corrected by the hydration factor (*0.9)
  4. cKlason lignin (not corrected for ash)
