Pith from stalks of corn, sweet sorghum, sugarcane, and sunflowers was fractionated into its hemicellulose components, and the neutral sugar content of each material was determined by gas-liquid chromatography. To compare pith with other components of the stalk, rind and fibrovascular bundles from corn were fractionated and analyzed in the same manner.
