Tree-hugging chemistry: The conversion of cellulose (non-food biomass) into chemicals can be carried out with the aid of heterogeneous catalysis using solid acids or supported metals (Pt, Ru). Thus, sugar alcohols such as sorbitol and mannitol can be formed with high selectivity under relatively mild conditions and then further transformed into value-added products.
