- ... Lignin is a valuable source for chemicals, particularly phenols, and has the potential to serve as a raw material for fuels. Since lignin is a very complex molecule, it is very challenging to cleave bonds in lignin selectively yielding value-added chemicals. Over the years, several methods have been developed for lignin valorisation, e.g., pyrolysis, gasification, hydrolysis, hydrogenolysis, chemi ...

- ... Boronic acid was used to accelerate a three-component reaction of indoles, thiols, and glyoxylic acids for the synthesis of α-sulfanyl-substituted indole-3-acetic acids. Boronic acid catalysis to activate the α-hydroxy group in α-hydroxycarboxylic acid intermediates and intramolecular assistance by free carboxylic acid were the keys to accelerating the product formation. ...
