This study provides new insights into the formation mechanisms of various organic acids from hydrothermal decomposition of biomass under non-catalytic conditions. Firstly, the primary products from hydrothermal decomposition of mallee biomass and its main components are studied. Then, systematic research is undertaken to investigate the formation of various organic acids from hydrothermal decomposition of key intermediates including cellobiose, glucose, fructose and mannose. The reaction pathways of key organic acids from various sugar compounds are revealed.

Leaching Characteristics of Organic and Inorganic Matter from Biomass by Water: Differences between Batch and Semi-continuous OperationsLiaw, Sui Boon; Wu, Hongwei (2013)Over 30% and ~2% (on a carbon basis) organic matter can be leached from mallee leaf and wood by water, respectively, producing acidic leachates containing organic acids. As a result, there are significant differences in ...
Berwick, Lyndon (2009)The analytical capacity of MSSV pyrolysis has been used to extend the structural characterisation of aquatic natural organic matter (NOM). NOM can contribute to various potable water issues and is present in high ...
Demineralization of wood using wood-derived acid: Towards a selective pyrolysis process for fuel and chemicals productionOudenhoven, S.; Westerhof, Roel; Aldenkamp, N.; Brilman, D.; Kersten, S. (2013)A process concept for the pyrolysis of demineralized wood to obtain high organic and especially levoglucosan yields is proposed and tested experimentally. The wood is demineralized using organic acids, produced and ...
