Catalytic Biomass Conversion to Chemicals
Wednesday, November 10, 2010 - 3:15pm to 3:40pm
Catalytic conversions of butanol, 2-butanol and isobutanol to olefins are investigated in a short contact time reactor. These butanol isomers were converted to 4-carbon olefins that are useful for synthetic fuel production.
