Recent advances in the catalytic production of glucose from lignocellulosic biomass
Recently, research on the catalytic production of glucose, the first platform chemical in biorefinery, has become attractive in catalysis studies and the chemical/fuel industry owing to its broad applications. It opens up a new route for achieving sustainable chemical production and energy supply. From this viewpoint, this contribution attempts to overview the recent advances in the catalytic routes for the synthesis of glucose from lignocellulosic biomass over various homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts.
