How to lose cellulose: Hydrolysis of cellulose is experiencing a new research and development cycle, in which this reaction is carried out over solid catalysts and coupled to other reactions for its efficient utilization. This review covers 1) structural features of cellulose, 2) conventional acid-catalyzed processes, 3) mechanism of acid-catalyzed hydrolysis, 4) reaction media, and 5) solid acid catalysts for the transformation of cellulose.
