However, because these attributes have been described extensively elsewhere, the reader is referred to such sources (7, 5, 7, 8, 77). Research Progress In the early 1980s, evaluations of biomass conversion to ethanol were conducted to discover a quick fix that would ameliorate the high price of petroleum (3). Although biomass conversion was found to not yet be competitive with making ethanol from corn, primarily because the mixture of five sugars released in hemicellulose hydrolysis could not be converted to ethanol at high yields or used for other products, these studies were used to develop a common basis for comparison of bioethanol technologies and to define research priorities (77).
