Recycling plant material into stock chemicals with electrochemistry

While most people think of recycling in terms of the packaging for household products, the concept can extend to the chemistry to make them in the first place. Certain plant components are a promising renewable source for commodity chemicals. Today, researchers have revealed an easy new way to break down one of the most common plant compounds, called lignin, and recycle it into useful chemicals.
