Catalytic conversion of CO2 to hydrocarbons
The production of methanol and dimethyl ether via CO2 hydrogenation was studied using Pd catalysts supported on α-Ga2O3, α-β-Ga2O3 and β-Ga2O3 polymorphs. The catalytic activity improves with the increase in the content ...
Effect of protic and aprotic polar solvents on the heterogeneous catalytic conversion of hexoses
We studied the synthesis, the characterization and the solvent effect on the catalytic performance of materials with Brønsted or Lewis acidity on the hexose conversion towards value-added molecules such as 5-(hydroxymeth ...
DFT analysis on structure-property relationships of metal-substituted zeolites
Metal-modified zeolites have proven to be effective catalysts for various important reactions involving the transformation of biomass-derived molecules and the conversion of greenhouse gases, such as CO2 and CH4. In this ...
Catalytic conversion of biomass renewable feedstocks to platform molecules using Brønsted acid catalysts
The fractionation of sugarcane bagasse, plantain peel and brewer’s spent grains to glucose, xylose and lignin was studied using 0.50 and 0.05 wt% H2SO4 as catalyst in a mixture of 80:20 wt% γ-valerolactone:water. We ...
