  1. 1. Modelling Chemical Reactions : Theoretical Investigations of Organic Rearrangement Reactions

    Author : Per-Erik Larsson; Sten Lunell; Nessima Salhi-Benachenhou; Olle Matsson; Osvaldo Goscinski; Ian H. Williams; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantum chemistry; Kvantkemi; Quantum chemistry; Kvantkemi; Quantum Chemistry; Kvantkemi;

    Abstract : Chemical reactions are ubiquitous and very important for life and many other processes taking place on earth. In both theoretical and experimental studies of reactivity a transition state is often used to rationalise the outcome of such studies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Green Aromatics: Catalytic Valorisation of bio-derived 2,5-dimethylfuran over Zeolites and Zeotypes

    Author : Christopher Sauer; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biomass conversion; infrared spectroscopy; BTX Aromatics; 2; 5-dimethylfuran; Zeolite; Catalysis; Online Analysis; Zeotype;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses the use of biomass as a potentially green feedstock for the chemical industry in the urgent shift away from fossil resources. I elaborate on reasons why we cannot afford to burn virgin biomass for energy production, among them a variety of ecosystem services that forests and other lands provide. READ MORE

  3. 3. Green aromatics for a bio-based economy - Valorization of biomass derived model compounds over zeolites studied by online analysis

    Author : Christopher Sauer; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; online analysis; zeolite; biomass conversion; catalysis; 2; 5-dimethylfuran;

    Abstract : In the strive towards sustainable chemical production, its carbon-based products can no longer be produced from fossil resources but need to be manufactured from a renewable feedstock. Simple aromatic building blocks like benzene, toluene and xylenes (BTX) can be obtained by catalytic valorization of biomass derived platform molecules such as furans provided efficient catalysts can be formulated.
