Iridium-catalysed primary alcohol oxidation and hydrogen shuttling for the depolymerisation of lignin

Lignin is a potentially abundant renewable resource for the production of aromatic chemicals, however its selective depolymerisation is challenging. Here, we report a new catalytic system for the depolymerisation of lignin to novel, non-phenolic monoaromatic products based on the selective β -O-4 primary alc
