Table 2 Monosaccharide composition of structural carbohydrates in raw sugarcane bagasse (% on dry basis), and recalculation to polysaccharides

From: Extraction of sugarcane bagasse arabinoxylan, integrated with enzymatic production of xylo-oligosaccharides and separation of cellulose

  1. The column cellulose represents a recalculation of the glucose content, using the correction factor 0.9 (based on the NREL procedure). The column hemicellulose represents a recalculation of the xylose, arabinose, galactose and mannose, using the correction factor 0.88 for xylose and arabinose and 0.9 for galactose and mannose
