Dr. Mário Simões, Dr. Stève Baranton and Prof. Christophe Coutanceau Electrochemical Valorisation of Glycerol ChemSusChem 5
Sweet success of electron: Glycerol from biofuel industries can be valorised through green and sustainable electrochemical processes (fuel or electrolysis cell) for cogenerating energy or hydrogen and value-added chemicals (i.e., dihydroxyacetone, hydroxypyruvate, mesoxalate, etc.). Kinetics, selectivity and reaction mechanism strongly depend on the composition and structure of the catalyst and on the applied potential. Pt-free catalysts as active as Pt have been developed for the controlled oxidation of glycerol.
