FTIR spectroscopy, combined with multivariate regression, accurately predicted sugar conversions (g sugars/100 g potential sugar) and sugar yields (g sugars/100 g dry solids) from cellulase-mediated hydrolysis of six plant biomasses that underwent four levels of low-temperature NaOH pretreatment. The sugar-yield models are noteworthy for their ability to predict enzymatic saccharification per mass dry solids without a priori knowledge of the composition of the solids.
