Table 2 Effect of explosive discharge on the composition of pretreated solids

From: A novel hybrid organosolv: steam explosion method for the efficient fractionation and pretreatment of birch biomass

Pretreatment conditions Cellulose (% w/w) Hemicellulose (% w/w) Lignin (% w/w)
Organosolv (200 °C—60% v/v ethanol—15 min)
 With explosion 66.3 22.0 7.8
 Without explosion 57.7 17.4 9.1
Steam explosion (200 °C—5 min—0.14% w/w H2SO4)
 With explosion 57.2 12.1 27.1
 Without explosion 46.8 13.0 27.7
