The aim of this work is to study the conversion of arabinoxylans from wheat bran into monomeric sugars, namely xylose and arabinose, using RuCl3-based catalysts. Arabinoxylans (AX), which are the major components of wheat bran, can be converted into arabinose and xylose by a hydrolysis process (Fig. 1). These two sugars are very interesting platform […]
Last October, Dr. Luis Miguel Sanz Moral, researcher at High Pressure Processes Group of University of Valladolid, and member of the LightEnergy project team, traveled with another winners of the Regional phase of YUZZ 2016 to Silicon Valley to participated into a course about innovation and entrepreneurship. Further visiting some of the leading companies worldwide, […]

Regarding the shortage of fossil resources and energy sustainability, a great piece of attention has been paid to look for novel alternatives in order to obtain fuels, chemicals and energy. Due to its high oxygen-to-carbon ratio, cellulosic biomass appears as a promising feedstock for its valorization into chemicals and building blocks. In recent years, direct […]
Dr. Miriam Rueda defended her thesis on Friday 18th November 2016 at the University of Valladolid (international PhD by University of Pavia). Nowadays, the development of renewable energy resources is attracting much more attention in order to reduce economic and environmental problems associated to the use of fossil fuels. However, their production is variable during time […]
CO2 can be used in copolymerization reactions as a C1 feedstock. It can be inserted into the polymer chain. Through the mechanism of Ring Opening Polymerization, propylene oxide is a suitable monomer for such reaction.
