Mechanochemical degradation of lignin and wood by solvent-free grinding in a reactive medium

Author affiliations

Abstract

A mechanochemical approach for the cleavage of β-O-4-linkages in lignin is reported. The method is transition metal- and solvent-free, requires only inexpensive reagents, and tolerates the presence of water and standard reagent impurities.
