Bioethanol is one of the most promising renewable resources for the production of important monomers. To date, there have been various processes proposed for bioethanol conversion to renewable monomers. In this review, the catalytic bioethanol upgrading to various types of monomers using hierarchical zeolites as catalysts is illustrated, including the recent design and preparation of hierarchical zeolites for these catalytic processes. The characterizations of catalysts including textural properties, pore architectures, acidic properties, and active species are also exemplified. Moreover, the catalytic studies with various processes of monomer production from bioethanol including bioethanol dehydration, bioethanol to hydrocarbons, and bioethanol to butadiene are revealed in terms of catalytic activities and mechanistic studies. In addition, the future perspectives of these catalytic circumstances are proposed in both economic and sustainable development contexts. View Full-Text
