Catalytic Conversion of Cellulose to Carboxylic Acids through Aqueous Phase Partial Oxidation
Finding a drop in alternative to petroleum based fuels, which can compete both on performance and price, represents one of the greatest chemical engineering challenges of the twenty first century. Cellulosic biomass, is ...
Mechanistic Study of Catalytic Partial Oxidation of Cellulose in Aqueous Solutions
Biomass, the only sustainable source of organic carbon, is regarded as an ideal renewable energy source to replace fossil fuels, chemicals and carbon-based materials from petroleum. Lignocellulosic biomass is the platform ...
Liquid Phase Conversion of Biomass to Renewable Fuels and Chemicals
Renewable energy, currently occupying an appreciable portion of global energy, plays a major role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Biomass resources, which are superior to other renewables in terms of flexible ...
Catalytic Conversion of Lignocellulosic Biomass to Carboxylic Acids and Derivatives
The transition from today’s fossil fuel based economy to a sustainable economy that is grounded in renewable biomass is driven by concern of climate change and anticipation of dwindling fossil fuel resources. Biofuel is ...
