Pinch out H2: Hydrogen is produced through aqueous phase dehydrogenation of bioethanol using ruthenium pincer-type complexes as catalysts. The complexes are highly active in a broad range of water concentrations and at mild reaction temperatures, demonstrating that hydrogen production from fermented bioethanol is feasible. A long-term reaction reaches excellent catalytic productivities with 80 000 turnover numbers.
- One-pot Aldol Condensation and Hydrodeoxygenation of Biomass-derived Carbonyl Compounds for Biodiesel Synthesis
Dr. Laura Faba, Dr. Eva Díaz and Prof. Salvador Ordóñez

One step is enough! The use of bifunctional catalysts allows the integration of aldol condensation and total hydrodeoxygenation of the condensation products in a single step. Using an aqueous solution of furfural and acetone, selectivities to alkanes higher than 50 % are obtained when Pt/Mg–Zr oxides are used as catalyst. The use of organic solvent, carbonaceous supports, or mechanical mixtures of basic and metal catalysts leads to poorer results.

How to reach GreenChemNano: We address the role of the different components of a plant extract in the reduction/stabilization of metal ions during the green synthesis of metal nanoparticles, a phenomenon that is not yet understood clearly. The behavior of the components of a Eucalyptus aqueous extract during metal-ion reduction is followed by advanced chromatographic techniques, which establishes their specific role in this process.
- Simulated Performance of Reactor Configurations for Hot-Water Pretreatment of Sugarcane Bagasse
Dr. Véronique Archambault-Léger, Prof. Dr. Xiongjun Shao and Prof. Dr. Lee R. Lynd
Article first published online: 1 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402087
Bagasse bonus: The production of fuel from lignocellulosic biomass is of interest to develop a sustainable global energy system. Sugarcane residues such as bagasse are a particularly promising feedstock, but bagasse requires pretreatment. Simulated results show that a variety of promising flow-through pretreatment configurations result in very low sugar degradation and very high fiber digestibility for subsequent microbial or enzymatic processing to biofuel.
- From Furfural to Fuel: Synthesis of Furoins by Organocatalysis and their Hydrodeoxygenation by Cascade Catalysis
Dr. Benjamin L. Wegenhart, Dr. Linan Yang, Soon Cheong Kwan, Remi Harris, Prof. Dr. Hilkka I. Kenttämaa and Prof. Dr. Mahdi M. Abu-Omar
Article first published online: 1 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201402056
Fuelling innovation: The synthesis of furoins from furfurals in high yields is demonstrated in green and renewable solvents by N-heterocyclic carbene organocatalysts. The resulting furoins are used as fuel precursors using a Pd/C catalyst with acidic cocatalysts under mild conditions. With a Pd/Zeolite-β catalyst, 5,5′-dimethylfuroin is deoxygenated fully to dodecanes in high yields (76 %) and exceptional selectivity (96 %) for n-dodecane.
