Abstract: Cost-effective hydrolysis of lignocellulose at low acid concentrations to get high yield of sugars is commercially attractive but challenging. Oil palm empty fruit bunch (EFB) was hydrolyzed to get fermentable sugars using sulfuric acid and/or phosphoric acid whose concentrations were maintained at 1%, w/v). The combined use of H 2SO 4 and H 3PO 4 has a synergistic effect in improving xylose yield compared to using H 2SO 4 alone. An EFB particle diameter of 2mm is optimal for getting the highest xylose yield. © 2011 Elsevier B.V..
