Recalcitrance of biomass to physical and chemical processing is a major obstacle for biomass utilization as a feedstock for chemical or fuel production. Multiple imaging modalities are being used to monitor the deconstruction of lignocellulose during processing. Imaging of the biomass during deconstruction is providing guidance for the development and refinement of novel catalytic approaches to biomass deconstruction.
