Petrochemicals & Derivatives (16b)

#143 - Petrochemicals and Derivatives II (16B02)
This session is organized around recent advances in petrochemical chemistry and catalysis. This includes: (1) novel routes to petrochemicals and aromatics, (2) emerging petrochemical products, (3) novel uses of petrochemicals in either new products or new markets, and (4) advances in reaction chemistry and catalysis for the production of aromatics and derivatives. The session encourages participation from both and academia and industry where new chemistry and catalysis concepts and commercialization best practices can be shared.
