    Abstract: Another sustainable energy source with many uses is bioethanol. The investigation of diluted H2SO4 hydrolysis (0.25 M to 2 M) was initially conducted in this context of producing bioethanol from maize cob using a magnetic stirrer at varied temperatures (40 to 100°C) and reaction times (60 to 105 min) with the purpose of optimizing the processes.
