In this talk, we will present a new chemistry pathway allows production of open-chain hydrocarbon from lignin. The chemistry will generate precursors for fuel and high value chemicals simultaneously. This work also aiming provide new perspectives towards the understanding and design of lignin sequential depolymerization and aromatic ring cleavage.
