Sorghum husk is a lignocelluloses source that can be converted to reducing sugars. Sorghum husk was hydrolyzed using sulphuric acid (0.2N) at a temperature of 65-70°C. It was observed that the degradation has significant effect with respect to amount of husk taken and in turn sugar yield is around 40-50%, each of which is estimated by Bertrand's, Benedict's and Lane-Eyon methods.
