Microwave assisted extraction advantages are widely recognised. However, its implementation at an industrial scale is restricted due to microwave limitations. In this work, a microwave pretreatment is proposed as an easy scale-up alternative. The double effect of this pretreatment on extraction yield and on product richness is assessed. Microwaves accelerate the extraction kinetics of most […]
International Green Catalysis Symposium will be held March 23rd – 24th of 2017 at Rennes (France). Among the topics to be discussed there are inclued: homogeneous catalysis arising from molecular metal complexes, catalysis applications for clean processes leading to complex molecules and materials; biomass transformations into useful industrial intermediates or biodegradable polymers; energy economy or energy […]
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.
Three european and international congresses will be held next year. The International Symposium on Green Chemistry will take place from May 16th to May 19th at La Rochelle (France). Among the topics to be discussed there are inclued: renewable carbon, biomass conversion, valorization of waste, alternative solvents and polymes among others. Besides plennary […]
