With ionic liquids as solvents and corn straw as raw material, different processes of lignocellulose pretreatment with acid as catalyst were studied under conventional heating/microwave irradiation and the reducing sugar was measured. The results indicated that acid can accelerate hydrolysis reaction of corn straw into reducing sugar with ionic liquids as solvent, and microwave irradiation was more efficient in pretreatment of corn straw than conventional heating. The influences of different
