Hydrogen peroxide direct synthesis was experimentally studied in three different reactors, namely the batch, semibatch and trickle bed reactors (TBR), using a new promising catalyst based on Pd/K2621. Excellent results were obtained from the experimental point of view, achieving high H2O2 selectivities, around 90% for a short contact time in the batch reactor, 60% in […]
Modeling of biomass fractionation in a lab-scale biorefinery: Solubilization of hemicellulose and cellulose from holm oak wood using subcritical water. Download for free until 8 December 2015: http://authors.elsevier.com/a/1RutK3QUFYuE8n
Biomass is a renewable substance formed by three solid components (hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin) in which water and oil can be also present. Kinetics use an auto-catalytic model because it has been used successfully by other authors to reproduce the characteristic degradation in cellulosic materials.
