Hot Article: Lignin-derived bio-oils

Bruce Gates and colleagues from the University of California look at the conversion of lignin-derived bio-oils by a platinum-aluminium oxide catalyst in this Catalysis Science & Technology Hot article.

This work focuses on the kinetics of the reaction, looking at what products are made and why, which will allow a better understanding of the bifunctional catalyst used. Lignocellulosic biomass is used to create biofuels, but the fundamental chemistry of bio-oil conversion like this is poorly understood, something which the team aim to correct.
