Biomass Pretreatment using Deep Eutectic Solvent from Lignin derived Phenols

Abstract

In future biorefineries, development of inexpensive and renewable reagents is highly desirable. In this work, we report new class and renewable deep eutectic solvent (DES) synthesized from lignin-derived phenolic compounds. Novel DESs tested in this work showed their potential as solvents for biomass pretreatment in terms of lignin removal and sugar release after enzymatic saccharification. Recycling and reusability of DESs were also evaluated. The results from this study prove that DESs synthesized from renewable resource are promising solvent for future biorefinery.
