Copolymerization of Propylene oxide and Carbon Dioxide at subcritical conditions, with heterogeneous catalysis in batch mode

As it is well known, CO2 is a Greenhouse Gas (GHG), so it is highly recommended to reduce emissions to the atmosphere for a sustainable future. Capturing CO2 in polymers is a hot research topic nowadays. Concretely, the aim is to develop a polycarbonate from propylene oxide by the Ring Opening Polymerization technique (ROP) introducing […]

One-pot synthesis of catalysts by supercritical fluid deposition for biomass valorization

Supercritical fluid deposition (SFD) is an alternative technique, one-pot process, to obtain nanostructured materials. These materials have been attracting increased attention for a wide variety of applications due to their superior properties compared to their bulk counterparts, but the traditional synthesis methods to insert transition metals into mesoporous frameworks, generally by wet impregnation or co-precipitation, […]
