Hydrolysis of agricultural wastes of jute sticks and rice husks were studied to extract D-xylose. When jute sticks was used as substrate, 1N H SO was found to be suitable for D-xylose extraction at boiling temperature after 24 a period of 1h. 1N H SO was also found best for D-xylose extraction from rice husks. No cellobiose was detected in 24 hydrolysate.
