Krafty upgrade of a waste product: Kraft lignin was fully depolymerized into C6–C10 liquid products (see scheme) over a nanostructured α-molybdenum carbide catalyst in supercritical ethanol. In this process, which can be regarded as a fundamental finding for the upgrade of Kraft lignin to bio-oils under mild conditions, lignin fragments are rapidly stabilized with ethanol on the surface of the catalyst.
