Not everybody can be a lignin supermodel: A commercially available Ru-complex was found to be efficient in the selective dearyloxylation of various lignin-type model compounds under hydrogen-autotransfer conditions. Addition of base and a primary alcohol after the dearyloxylation set the stage for a sequential alkylative dearyloxylation giving various α-alkylated lignin-type degradation products in good yields.
