Table 2: Initial rates of fermentable sugar formed during hydrolysis of safflower whole seeds. Initial hydrolysis rates were calculated from the data obtained during the first 10 minutes of hydrolysis.

wt% [C2mim][Ac]Initial rate of formation (mg/mL/min)a

glucose0.43 (0.007)0.44 (0.002)
xylose0.12 (0.022)0.12 (0.019)

The reported values are averages of two samples. The values in brackets are the deviations of the measured values from the mean.
