An increase in temperature to 180 °C results in rapid release of Mg and Ca, but a further increase in temperature has little effect. The release of Mg and Ca is associated with the conversion of organic matter during hydrothermal processing. In particular, the release of water-insoluble Mg and Ca correlates well with the arabinose recovery, suggesting that these species are bound to carboxylic acid functional group on hemicellulose side chains and their release requires the cleavage of these side chains.
