Cellulose–Hemicellulose and Cellulose–Lignin Interactions during Fast Pyrolysis
ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering (2015)
Previously, the primary product distribution resulting from fast pyrolysis of cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin was quantified. This study extends the ...
Synthesis and characterization of hierarchically structured aluminosilicates
Journal of Materials Chemistry (2011)
Catalytically active aluminosilicate materials with hierarchical porous structures are produced. A spontaneous self-assembly in aqueous solution starting from component alkoxides ...
Direct observation of macropore self-formation in hierarchically structured metal oxides
Chemical Communications (2010)
The current work presents an unprecedented direct observation of macropore formation in the spontaneous self-assembly process to obtain hierarchical meso/macroporous ...
Enhancing CO−Water Mass Transfer by Functionalized MCM41 Nanoparticles
Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research (2008)
Organic groups are grafted to 250-nm-diameter MCM41 nanoparticles with a spherical morphology to enhance the CO−water volumetric mass-transfer coefficient (kLa) ...
