1. Introduction

Vegetable biomass is generated from CO2 and H2O using sunlight as the energy source, producing O2 as a subproduct. The primary products formed are C6- and C5-sugars that form cellulose (by polymerization of glucose) and hemicellulose (a polymer of glucose and xylose). There is a third component, lignin, that is a highly cross-linked polymer built of substituted phenols and, together with cellulose and hemicellulose, gives strength to plants. Besides those com- ponents, plants are also able to elaborate energy storage products such as lipids, sugars, and starches as well as other products relatively rich in hydrogen and carbon (terpenes) that are found in essential oils that are components of resins, steroids, and rubber.

The Kyoto protocol, together with the desire to reduce society’s dependence on imported crude oil, has directed researchers’ attention to the use of biomass as a source of energy and, more specifically, for transportation fuels.1-4 In this sense, ethanol has been used for some time already, blended with conventional fuels or transformed into ethyl tert-butyl ether. However, if one considers the energy content of the different biomass products, terpenes top the list, followed by vegetable oils, lignin, and sugars. Since the production of terpenes is too low to meet the requirements for biofuels, it is not surprising that the most attention has been focused on vegetable oils. However, the limited amounts of triglycerides available, together with ethical reasons, has directed future development for large-scale production of biofuels toward lignocellulose as the most interesting source. If lignocellulose can be used for biofuels, then the more valuable sugars, vegetable oils, and terpenes
