  1. aValues represent sugars in their dehydrated polymeric form
  2. bLignin-rich residue recovered as insoluble fraction at the end of a 48-h enzymatic hydrolysis of steam-explosion birch with Cellic Ctec2
  3. cThe ratio of syringylpropane to guaiacylpropane (S/G ratio) was determined to be 2.8 and 5.8 for birch and LRR birch, respectively. For spruce only G could be quantified
