Deconstructing cellulose: This highlight presents an emerging concept dealing with the mechanocatalytic deconstruction of biopolymers including cellulose, lignin, and lignocellulosic biomass. This dry treatment of biomass is expected to open new horizons in the field of biomass processing. In particular, mechanocatalysis is now considered as a promising entry into biorefinery.
