Thermolytic sugars from biomass: Using a simple acid pretreatment, the catalytic activity of naturally occurring alkali and alkaline earth metals in lignocellulosic biomass is dramatically reduced, allowing the purely thermal production of sugars from biomass. The optimal amount of acid for the thermal depolymerization of biomass to sugars is proportional to the amount of alkali and alkaline earth metals inherently contained in the biomass feedstock.
