Bio (plant)-based chemicals are the unexpected beneficiaries of the North American shale gas boom .. Sugars, glycerin and other plant-derived feedstocks are emerging as economically
Self-assembled nanoparticulates of porous sulfonated carbonaceous TiO2 material that contain Brønsted and Lewis acidic sites were prepared by a one-pot synthesis method.
Selectively cleaving the CO bond outside the furan ring of furfural is crucial for converting this important biomass-derived molecule to value-added fuels such as 2-methylfuran.
A key challenge in the biofuels landscape is to get more advanced biofuels—fuels other than corn ethanol and vegetable oil-based biodiesel—into the transportation pool.
While some crops could hold great potential as bioenergy sources, they could also pose a threat as an invasive species. A new study in the
Furfural and 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) are the degradation products of lignocellulose during pretreatment operations and significantly inhibit the consequent enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation processes.
A pioneering study has proposed a new integrated method for producing aviation fuels from woody feedstock by considering all downstream processing stages and carrying out a
1,2-pentanediol is a key ingredient for the cosmetic industry and an intermediate for agricultural applications and other specialty markets. Additional production facilities will come on
One-pot selective conversion of highly concentrated furfural to 1,5-pentanediol (1,5-PeD) was carried out over Rh-added Ir-ReOx/SiO2 catalysts through two-step reaction temperatures.”… DalinYebo‘s insight: Reduced to
The Palm Oil industry generates large quantity of wastes whose disposal is a challenging task. In the Palm Oil mill, fresh fruit bunches are sterilized
