Lignin, the glue that holds trees together, is the most abundant natural resource of aromatics. In that respect, it is a far more advanced resource than crude oil, because it already contains the aromatic functional groups. Thus, catalytic conversion of lignin to high-value aromatics is environmentally attractive, but can also be an economically viable option. Zea Strassberger explores the fundamentals of lignin depolymerisation reactions through the study of monomeric and dimeric model compounds and then moves towards the actual lignin as feedstock.
