A single step saccharification of lignocellulosics using a new thermochemical process has studied to develop a simple and rapid saccharification method. Wood powder of Liriodendron tulipifera and Populus alba x glandulosa were used as lignocellulosic materials. They underwent a thermochemical treatment using a flow-type reactor at 350, 380, 400, and 425 °C under the pressure of 23 MPa. Wood powder (10 g) was suspended in 1 L distilled water mixed with 0.05 % HNO3 prior...
