Green Chemistry issue 2 is now available online

Issue 2 of Green Chemistry is a themed issue on the conversion of biomass with heterogeneous catalysts, Guest Edited by Professors Paul Dauenhauer and George Huber. It’s available to read online now.

GC issue 2 coverThe front cover this month (pictured left) features a review by Jesse Hensley and co-workers from Golden, Colorado. In their article they focus on recent model compound studies of catalysts for hydrodeoxygenation of biomass pyrolysis products, with an emphasis on mechanisms, reaction networks, and structure–function relationships.
