72 Catalytic Processing of Fossil and Biorenewable Feedstocks I: C-O Bond Activation

Monday, November 14, 2016: 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Franciscan B (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
Catalysis can play a key role in environmentally benign production of biodegradable and/or renewable chemicals and materials. This season focuses on catalyst and catalytic process development for producing chemicals and fuels from biomass, petroleum, and coal.
