Catalytic conversion of biomass using solvents derived from lignin

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report an approach by which the hemicellulose and cellulose fractions of biomass are converted through catalytic processes in a solvent prepared from lignin into high value platform chemicals and transportation fuels, namely furfural, 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, levulinic acid and γ-valerolactone.
