Nowadays, the transformation of lignocellulosic biomass into added-value products such as reducing sugars is attracting great attention. Pentose and hexose sugars are very important industrial intermediates because they represent a versatile platform for the synthesis of several valuable compounds through chemical or biotechnological approaches. The present study was focused on the valorization of two promising non-food crops, such as giant reeds (Arundo donax L.) and cardoon (Cynara cardunculus L.) through the employment of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts for the production of C5 and C6 rich hydrolyzates. All reactions were performed in a microwave reactor and in aqueous medium.
