The depolymerisation of the biopolymer lignin can give pure aromatic monomers but selective catalytic approaches remain scarce. Here, an approach was re-routed to deliver an unusual phenolic monomer. This monomer’s instability proved challenging but a degradation study identified strategies to overcome this. Heterocycles and a useful synthetic intermediate were prepared. The range of aromatics available from the b-O-4 unit in lignin was extended.
