VIP: Adsorption and Reactive Desorption on Metal–Organic Frameworks: A Direct Strategy for Lactic Acid Recovery

Timothée Stassin, Dr. Helge Reinsch, Dr. Ben Van de Voorde, Dr. Stefan Wuttke, Dr. Dana D. Medina, Prof. Dr. Norbert Stock, Prof. Dr. Thomas Bein, Prof. Dr. Rob Ameloot and Prof. Dr. Dirk De Vos

Adsorption and Reactive Desorption on Metal–Organic Frameworks: A Direct Strategy for Lactic Acid Recovery

MOFs to the rescue: The current fermentative production of biomass-derived lactic acid requires a tedious, non-sustainable, multi-step separation process. The adsorption and desorption of lactic acid on high-affinity porous crystalline metal–organic frameworks opens a direct and gypsum-waste-free alternative recovery route.

    Nitrogen makes the difference: A nitriding treatment to generate graphene-supported cobalt–manganese-oxynitride nanocatalysts (CoMnON/G) from spinel compound CoMnO increases the catalysts′ oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) activities considerably. The most active material catalyzes the ORR with only a 30 mV half-wave potential difference from the commercial carbon-supported platinum (Pt/C) in alkaline media. The catalyst also exhibits intrinsic stability that outperforms Pt/C.

    Dilute ammonia, get more sugars: Wheat straw is first pretreated using a modified ammonia fiber expansion (AFEX) process using a diluted aqueous ammonia solution. Extracting proteins from the reaction mixture has a distinct influence on the subsequent enzymatic hydrolysis, which produces fermentable sugars. This modified AFEX process using aqueous ammonia represents a simpler and less expensive variant of the AFEX process usually described in literature.
