Research on Mechanism of Preparation of Platform Compounds from Lignocellulosic Biomass Liquefaction Catalyzed by Bronsted Acid: a review

  • Over the past two decades, research on transforming lignocellulosic biomass into small molecule chemicals by using catalytic liquefaction has made great progress. Notably, recent years have seen the production of small molecule chemicals through directional liquefaction of lignocellulosic biomass. Understanding the liquefaction mechanism of lignocellulosic biomass is highly important. In this review, the liquefaction mechanism of lignocellulosic biomass and model compounds of cellulose are described. Some problems and suggestions to address them are described.
