Lignin-derived phenolics are converted into value-added building blocks by telomerization with butadiene. The versatile PolyPPh3 solid support shows excellent, tunable activity in this reaction outperforming its homogeneous Pd/PPh3 counterpart, showing the general promise this solid P ligand for metal/phosphine-catalyzed conversions.
