The latest issue of Catalysis Science and Technology contains a themed collection on Sustainable catalytic conversions of renewable substrates. The issue was guest edited by Pieter C. A. Bruijnincx (Utrecht University) and Yuriy Román-Leshkov (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
This issue contains contributions on topics related to catalytic biomass conversion methods, including homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzymatic processes. The themed issue will cover contributions concerned with chemical or chemical engineering aspects of the selective catalytic conversion of renewable feedstocks, for instance lignocellulosic biomass or its (hemi)cellulose or lignin components, or with the catalytic conversion of renewable platform molecules that can be derived from these feedstocks.
Here’s a small taster of the excellent content in this themed issue:
- Perspective: Transition metal-catalyzed oxidative double bond cleavage of simple and bio-derived alkenes and unsaturated fatty acids,
- Perspective: A review of advanced catalyst development for Fischer–Tropsch synthesis of hydrocarbons from biomass derived syn-gas,
- Communication: Catalytic hydrosilylation of oxalic acid: chemoselective formation of functionalized C2-products,
