Acid-catalysed hydrolysis with organic acids Recently, a new generation of biorefinery concepts is focusing on valorisation of all components of lignocellulosic biomass.1 Thus, different fractionation approaches, such as acid hydrolysis, enzyme hydrolysis and alkaline treatment, have been investigated intensively. Among them, acid-catalysed hydrolysis has attracted most of the attention by researchers, due to its high
