Chemosphere 2021 Apr 15;279:130512. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Faculty of Engineering, The University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK.

This study has demonstrated, for the first time, a simple, fast and flexible microwave processing method for the simultaneous preparation of bio-products (bio-oil, bio-gas and biochar) using a methodology that avoids any form of catalyst or chemical activation. The dielectric properties of biomass and physicochemical characterisation such as TGA, elemental and proximate analysis, XRD, SEM/EDX and textural properties, showed that 8 kJ g of microwave energy can produce superior biochars for applications in CO capture. The maximum CO uptake capacity for biochar produced was 2. Read More

Efficient Heterogeneous Palladium Catalysts in Oxidative Cascade Reactions.

Acc Chem Res 2021 Apr 19. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Department of Organic Chemistry, Arrhenius Laboratory, Stockholm University, SE-10691 Stockholm, Sweden.

ConspectusPalladium-catalyzed oxidations involving cascade processes provide a versatile platform for streamlined conversion of simple feedstocks into functional molecules with high atom and step economy. However, the achievement of high palladium efficiency and selectivity in Pd-catalyzed oxidative cascade reactions is still challenging in many cases, as a result of the aggregation of active palladium species to Pd black and the possible side reactions during each bond-forming step. The two current solutions for addressing these issues are either to utilize oxidant-stable ligands or to use electron transfer mediators (ETMs). Read More
