Microwave-assisted ammonium hydroxide (NH(4)OH) followed by phosphoric acid (H(3)PO(4)) treatments were used to release monomeric sugars from Miscanthus sinensis grown in Cha-Chueng-Sao province, Thailand. Treatment with 1.0% (w/v) NH(4)OH, 15:1 liquid-to-solid ratio (LSR) at 120°C temperature for 15min liberated 2.9g of monomeric sugars per 100g of dried biomass, whereas the corresponding yield for a treatment with 1.78% v/v H(3)PO(4), 15:1 LSR at 140°C for 30min was 62.3g/100g. The two-stage pretreatment, treatment with NH(4)OH at 120°C temperature for 15min followed by treatment with H(3)PO(4) at 140°C for 30min, impressively provided the highest total monomeric sugar yield of 71.6g/100g dried biomass.
