However which ever way grasses are used the major determinates of energy content are lignins, cell wall (cross linking) phenolics and the soluble and cell wall carbohydrates. In addition to energy content, these components also have the potential to affect the efficiency of the energy conversion process and the end quality of some liquid fuels. Fuel specification is therefore a critical area and to assist in this, it is necessary to develop high throughput methods for phenotyping of for example the cell wall components.
