The hydrolytic conversion of sawdust was studied by sulfuric acid-enzymatic and sodium hydroxide-enzymatic treatments. Sugars were identified by paper chromatography and quantified colorimetrically. Sawdust yielded dextrose and xylose in concentrations ranging from 3.01 to 3.64 and 3.48 to 6.61 grams per 100g. Under optimum conditions, the total concentration of sugars was 10.7 grams per 100 grams.
