Bifunctional catalysts with improved hydrothermal stability for the hydrolytic hydrogenation of cellulose into polyols
The increase in the world’s energy needs has caused a renewed interest in finding green ways to produce fuels. In this work, we present a study of the hydrolytic hydrogenation of cellulose on bifunctional catalysts for the ...
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 ...
Conversion of biomass derived feedstocks to platform molecules using bifunctional mesostructured silica based catalysts
The combination of Brønsted acidity with metallic functionality in a mesoporous catalyst offers a potential pathway for the conversion of cellulose into sugar alcohols that may be used as a sustainable source of renewable ...
