    Abstract

    Hot water treatment of wood prior to pulping operations is recognized as a potential method to extract the hemicelluloses and convert them into value-added products. In addition to oligo- and monosaccharides originating from the carbohydrates, lignin fractions and organic acids such as acetic acid can be typically found in the water extract [1]. Under intense extraction conditions, considerable amounts of other degradation products are also formed [2]. The goal of this study was to identify low-molar mass degradation products from birch wood in water extracts produced at various extraction intensities
