Catalytic valorization of the acetate fraction of biomass to aromatics

In many plant species, the acetate fraction is the fourth most prominent fraction by weight after cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin, and can be easily extracted as a single stable molecule, acetic acid, at high yields. Despite this, upgrading the acetate fraction of biomass has received very limited attention. Here, we demonstrate a valorization route…
