Lignocellulosic components including hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin are the three major components 
of plant cell walls, and their proportions in biomass crops, such as Miscanthus sinensis, greatly impact feed
stock conversion to liquid fuels or bio-products. In this study, the feasibility of using visible and near
infrared (VIS/NIR) spectroscopy to rapidly quantify hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin in M. sinensis
was investigated. Initially, prediction models were established using partial least squares (PLS), least
squares support vector machine regression (LSSVR), and radial basis function neural network (RBF_NN)
based on whole wavelengths. Subsequently, 23, 25 and 27 characteristic wavelengths for hemicellulose,
cellulose and lignin, respectively, were found to show significant contribution to calibration models.
Three determination models were eventually built by PLS, LS-SVM and ANN based on the characteristic
wavelengths. Calibration models for lignocellulosic components were successfully developed, and can
now be applied to assessment of lignocellulose contents in M. sinensis.
