Levulinic acid is a platform chemical with significant potential to substitute petroleum-based products in the chemical and fuel sectors. Agricultural waste, cow dung, was used
California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has announced it will not list furfuryl alcohol, also known as 2-furanmethanol, as a
Each job in the US bioeconomy adds 1.64 jobs in adjacent sectors. An economic impact analysis of the US biobased products industry showed that in
Furfuryl alcohol was hydrolysed to levulinic acid with yields >70%. (ACS Catalysis)American and Brazilian Researchers observed a reduction of the furfuryl alcohol polymerization reactions, when
Butanol is the go-to industrial solvent for products such as lacquers and enamels, but it might also play a substantial role in the production of
The potential to use greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) as a feedstock for producing new materials is a hot topic currently and could help to
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.
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
