Described herein is a process for conversion and upgrading of biomass to products. The process involves converting the biomass to primary lignin-derivatives and primary cellulose/hemicellulose derivatives, catalytically treating the primary lignin-derivatives to produce secondary lignin-derived products, and treating the primary cellulose/hemicellulose- derivatives to produce secondary cellulose/hemicellulose-derived products.
