    The main aim of this themed issue is to compile key contributions and advances from work carried out in the framework of the COST Action related to novel and innovative (bio)catalytic strategies for the valorization of lignocellulosic feedstocks and fractions (i.e. hemicelluloses, cellulose and/or lignin) and the design of catalytic materials for this purpose.
    Editorial: The challenge in biomass and lignocellulosics conversion lies in the development of novel catalytic formulations with tailored properties and increased stability, able to efficiently process such complex and recalcitrant feedstocks. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/cctc.201600226

    About this Research Topic: The importance of understanding the deconstruction of biomass-derived feedstocks towards valuable chemicals, fuels and related added-value products lies in the fundamental and rational design of processes, catalytic systems and methodologies able to efficiently break down these recalcitrant feedstocks. Based on these premises, a number of different approaches have been reported in literature to valorize the main three different fractions of lignocellulosics (cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin) using a wide range of bio- nano- and photocatalyzed protocols. These have been mostly aimed towards the production of fuels and chemicals, with lignin and cellulose been the most attractive fractions to be valorized. Based on these premises and the relevance of the topic for biomass valorization and catalyst design based on fundamental understanding, the proposed article collection will deal with the broad topic of the design of nano- and biocatalytic systems for lignocellulosics valorization, with a particular emphasis on the valorization of hemicellulose and lignin side streams and related derived molecules.

    About this Special Issue: The recent tremendous activity in lignin chemistry research shows that such molecular assemblies, when treated as a valuable chemical feedstock, become a material that can be used for the creation of polymeric materials, films, blends, rubber compounds, carbon fibers, drug delivery vehicles, etc. This is just to name a few of the possible applications enumerated in Lignin Refining, Functionalization, and Utilization.
