Selective hydrodeoxygenation of biomass-derived oxygenates over heterogeneous Mo-based catalysts
The development of catalytic pathways to produce commodity chemicals from lignocellulosic biomass is promising for substituting non-renewable fossil feedstock use. This dissertation studied the catalytic performance of ...
Conversion of carbohydrates to alpha-hydroxy-acids over Lewis acidic HF-, SN- and ZR- beta zeolite catalysts using gamma-valerolactone and water as solvent
The incorporation of Sn, Hf and Zr in the structure of Beta zeolite using a post-synthetic method gives catalysts with Lewis acidity that are effective for the conversion of C6 sugars to alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), such ...
