The factors responsible for the control of acid-catalyzed depolymerization of cellulose are presented here. Both cellulose and solid acid catalysts have distinct and important Practical aspects concerning the homogeneous nature of the catalysis, the effect of the ionic liquids impurities on the reaction performance, the suitability of different ionic liquids as solvents, and recyclability are also discussed in detail.
