Chemo Catalytic Conversion of Lignocellulosic Biomass into Marketable Products

  • 27 July 2022
  • 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
  • International House & Virtual IAS

IAS Visiting Fellow Jorge Beltramini delivers a seminar on his research. 

This presentation will discuss the challenges faced in this area and highlight our successes in catalyst design which have been facilitated by advances in nanotechnology and careful tuning of catalyst formulation.

The catalytic systems have been categorized into subgroups such as metal oxides and phosphates, supported metals, functionalized porous materials, and carbonaceous materials to discuss their structural features and active sites towards intrinsic reactivity and selectivity in the catalytic transformation via reactions such as: hydrolysis, dehydration, hydrodeoxygenation and oxidation.  Specific case studies will explore how the effects of pore architecture and acid/base strength can impact upon process efficiency.
