574 Catalysis with Microporous and Mesoporous Materials I: Lewis Acid Zeolites and Biomass Conversion

Wednesday, November 16, 2016: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
Imperial B (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session focuses on catalysis over a wide array of porous materials. Papers on the synthesis and structural and mechanistic characterization of inorganic/organic molecular sieve materials useful as catalysts for petrochemical synthesis and environmental remediation are invited.
