Abstract: Supercritical/subcritical water technology for hydrothermal treatment of biomass is a new technology in recent years. Firstly, hydrolysis mechanism, product distribution, hydrolysis optimization and kinetics of cellulose hydrolysis under the conditions of supercritical/subcritical water were summarized and concluded. The research progress and technology development of supercritical/subcritical technology for biomass hydrolysis were summarized and analyzed. Secondly, some new ways of hydrolysis conversion of biomass and development of reactor technology were discussed. Finally, the available applications and prospects of supercritical/subcritical water technology for biomass conversion were proposed.

Key words: biomass, cellulose, supercritical/subcritcal water, hydrolysis
