|Resumo:||Autohydrolysis was used as a pre-treatment method for the selective hydrolysis of hemicelluloses of four lignocellulosic materials: eucalypt wood chips (EWC), corn cobs (CC), wheat straw (WS) and brewery’s spent grain (BSG), and the process was optimized towards the production of xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS). The effects of temperature, both at isothermal (150-190ºC), and non-isothermal (up to 240ºC) conditions, and liquid-to-solid ratio (LSR), 8 or 10 g/g, on the composition of both the liquid and solid phases were studied. The operational conditions leading to the maximal recovery of XOS for each raw material were established and discussed based on the severity factor (log R0). The higher yields obtained were in the range of 43–65% of the feedstock (arabino)xylan, with the highest value attained for CC for log R0 =3.75. Under the optimised conditions for XOS production, glucan was only slightly solubilised, enabling an enrichment of the solid phase (up to 67% of glucan for EWC). Delignification was also not extensive reaching utmost 18%, in the case of CC. cosmetic industries.|
