Hydrodeoxygenation of lignin-derived phenols into alkanes by using nanoparticle catalysts combined with Bronsted acidic ionic liquids

The transformation of lignin-derived phenolic compds. to alkanes was achieved using catalysts based on Bronsted acidic ionic liqs. (ILs). The catalytic system is composed of metal nanoparticles (NPs) and a functionalized Bronsted acidic IL immobilized in a nonfunctionalized IL, allowing hydrogenation and dehydration reactions to occur in tandem. Compared to previous systems that are either performed with metal sulfite or with mineral acid/ supported metal catalysts in water, this system allows lignin derivs. to be upgraded in an efficient and less energy-demanding process.
