- In Situ Studies of Solvothermal Synthesis of Energy Materials
Dr. Kirsten M. Ø. Jensen, Dr. Christoffer Tyrsted, Dr. Martin Bremholm and Prof. Dr. Bo B. Iversen
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301042
In the thick of it: In situ X-ray and neutron studies of solvothermal and hydrothermal reactions can yield new information on the synthesis of energy material and map the structure–synthesis relationship. Various approaches to in situ powder diffraction and total scattering are reviewed. This review discusses experimental methods as well as strategies for data analysis and highlights the chemical insights that can be obtained from in situ experiments.
- CO2 Recycling: A Key Strategy to Introduce Green Energy in the Chemical Production Chain
Prof. Siglinda Perathoner and Prof. Gabriele Centi
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300926
Measuring up: The introduction of renewable energy in the chemical production chain is a key strategic factor both to realize a sustainable, resource-efficient, low-carbon economy and society and to drive innovation and competiveness in the chemical production. Carbon dioxide (CO2) recycling is one possible option. This Concept discusses this concept in terms of motivations, perspectives, and impact as well as technical barriers to achieve this goal.
- Base-Free, One-Pot Chemocatalytic Conversion of Glycerol to Methyl Lactate using Supported Gold Catalysts
Rajeesh Kumar Pazhavelikkakath Purushothaman, Dr. Jacco van Haveren, Dr. Ignacio Melián-Cabrera, Dr. Ernst R. H. van Eck and Prof. Dr. Hero J. Heeres
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301105
From glycerol to green building blocks and solvents! An efficient, base-free conversion of glycerol to methyl lactate in methanol is reported, achieving good yields (73 % at 95 % glycerol conversion) using Au/ultra-stable zeolite-Y (USY) as the catalyst and environmentally benign oxygen as the oxidant by combining two separate reaction steps efficiently in a one pot procedure. The Au/USY catalyst can be recycled without a decrease in the activity and selectivity.
- Syntheses of Biodiesel Precursors: Sulfonic Acid Catalysts for Condensation of Biomass-Derived Platform Molecules
Dr. Madhesan Balakrishnan, Eric R. Sacia and Prof. Alexis T. Bell
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201300931
Syntheses of biodiesel precursors: A silica-bound alkyl sulfonic acid catalyst has been developed for the process of upgrading biomass-derived furanic platform molecules to biodiesel precursors. The hydrophobic alkyl sulfonic acid functionality of this catalyst is responsible for the high activity in addition to the hydrolytic stability during the syntheses of biodiesel precursors. Various carbonyl compounds from biomass in combination with 2-methylfuran have been successfully upgraded to diesel-range compounds utilizing this catalyst.
- Hydrothermal Deoxygenation of Triglycerides over Pd/C aided by In Situ Hydrogen Production from Glycerol Reforming
Stefan A. W. Hollak, Maxim A. Ariëns, Prof. Dr. Krijn P. de Jong and Dr. Daan S. van Es
Article first published online: 5 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301145
With a little H2elp from my friends: A one-pot hydrolysis–deoxygenation reaction for triglycerides and free fatty acids, which is of particular interest for the production of biofuels and value-added chemicals from nonedible or waste fats and oils, is reported. The reaction is performed over palladium on carbon (Pd/C) at 250 °C without additional H2. Instead, in situ H2 production occurs through glycerol reforming and subsequent water–gas-shift reaction with a positive effect on the deoxygenation activity.
