Investigation of extracts of Miscanthus sinensis Anderss

Holzforschung 45(4): 285-289

Investigation of extracts of Miscanthus sinensis Anderss

The chemical composition of dry Miscanthus sinensis stalks and leaves (moisture content 7.6%) was analysed for plants harvested from experimental plots in Hornum, Denmark, in March 1989. Lipophilic compounds were extracted using petrol ether and diethylether, and polar compounds using acetone/water and water. Lipophilic compounds represented about 0.5% of the plant DM and consisted of free fatty acids, triglycerides, wax esters, sterol esters, free sterols and n-paraffins.
