Lignin-Based Composite Materials for Photocatalysis and Photovoltaics
Depleting conventional fuel reserves has prompted the demand for the exploration of renewable resources. Biomass is a widely available renewable resource that can be valorized to produce fuels, chemicals, and materials. ...
Chitosan-Based N‑Doped Carbon Materials for Electrocatalytic and Photocatalytic Applications
(American Chemical Society, 2020)
Chitosan-derived N-doped carbon materials are attractive candidates for the preparation of catalysts with a wide range of applications. Chitosan is a nitrogen rich (∼7 wt %) renewable biomass resource derived from seafood ...
Selective Oxidation of 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural to 2,5- Diformylfuran by Visible Light-Driven Photocatalysis over In Situ Substrate-Sensitized Titania
Solar energy-driven processes for biomass valorization are priority for the growing industrialized society. To address this challenge, efficient visible light-active photocatalyst for the selective oxidation of biomass-derived ...
Additive-free photo-assisted selective partial oxidation at ambient conditions of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural by manganese (IV) oxide nanorods
The valorization of natural and renewable resources, like lignocellulosic biomass, towards value-added chemicals by low energy and economically viable processes still remains a global research and technological ...
Synergy of photocatalysis and fuel cells: A chronological review on efficient designs, potential materials and emerging applications
The rising demand of energy and lack of clean water are two major concerns of modern world. Renewable energy sources are the only way out in order to provide energy in a sustainable manner for the ever-increasing demands ...
