Development Of Novel Catalysts

Catalysts must be developed that facilitate selective conversion of all biomass components including carbohydrates (cellulose and starch), hemicellulose (and associated C5 platform carbohydrates), lignin, proteins, and oils to useful products. The focus of this program is to identify and optimize new catalytic reactions that allow for selective transformation of renewable biomass-derived cellulose and lignin.
