Biphasic Catalysis for Production of Hydrocarbon fuels from Biomass
Background The use of renewable fuels in aviation is important for reducing our carbon footprint. Current bio-jet fuels produced from biomass feedstocks often have low densities and low volumetric heating values, and are often still blended with petro-jet fuels to meet energy density requirements. Current methods to produce bio-jet fuels with highe...

Catalytic Conversion of Lignocellulosic Biomass to Alkyl Lactates with Solid Lewis Acids
BackgroundThe use of organic feedstocks such as cellulose, the most abundant biomass on Earth, for the production of value-added chemicals may contribute to a more sustainable economy and ecosystem. Researchers at the University of Nevada, Reno have developed a method for producing organic compounds from an organic feedstock, such as cellulosic, li...
