How sweet is this: Easier biomass processing can be achieved by introducing labile ester bonds into the lignin backbone through lignification with hydroxycinnamates such as rosmarinic acid, allowing the polymer to be readily depolymerized through anticipated biomass processing; biomass delignification and polysaccharide saccharification can therefore be achieved with lower energy inputs.
