Jacobs and Prof. Dr. Bert F. Sels Back Cover: Conversion of (Ligno)Cellulose Feeds to Isosorbide with Heteropoly Acids and Ru on Carbon (ChemSusChem 1/2013) ChemSusChem 6
The back cover picture shows the sequential steps for the conversion of wheat straw to isosorbide: organosolv pretreatment of wheat straw to delignified pulp followed by one-pot hydrolytic hydrogenation and dehydration to isosorbide with heteropoly acids and Ru/C, as described by Sels et al. on page 199. The carbon cycle is tentatively closed via CO2 uptake from the end products (e.g. polymers, surfactants) by the wheat plants.
