In this contribution, opportunities for the application of zeolites as catalysts in the conversion of biomass into fuels and chemicals are discussed. The constitution of various types of biomass in terms of composition and potential uses is briefly introduced. This contribution will focus on selective transformation of lignocellulosic biomass. Relevant mechanistic insights in the conversion of biomass constituents as well as an overview of the state-of-the-art in the application of zeolites in biomass conversion reactions are discussed. This chapter highlights the unique features of zeolites which make them an appealing choice as catalysts in future chemical biorefinery approaches.
