Corncob was successively pretreated by liquid hot water (LHW) and ethanol organosolv (EO) in an integrated process. LHW was performed at 200 °C for 30 min, and EO was performed using uncatalyzed ethanol–water solutions, according to a design of experiments. The effects of the most influential operational variables (ethanol concentration, temperature and time) on yield and chemical composition of the fractions were assessed. Results showed the factor with the greatest effect was ethanol concentration (p < 0.05), leading to a high-purity lignin (86.7%–93.1%) with a total phenolic content of arou ...
