RUDN researcher develops system to produce ethers from cellulosic waste

October 28, 2020 |

In Russia, a chemist from RUDN University developed a silica-supported heteropolyacid system to produce ethers from waste products of the wood and paper industry and agriculture. Ethers can be used as biofuels, and the new method increases the efficiency of their production 4 to 10 times, thus reducing energy consumption and making the manufacturing of […]

In Russia, chemists from RUDN University, Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), and the University of Cordoba (Spain) developed a new method for the synthesis of biofuels from renewable vegetable raw materials. They proposed to use bimetallic catalysts for the production of 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF) biofuel. The chemists managed to increase the yield of DMF by one third, up […]

Researcher synthesizes ruthenium nanoparticles to produce biofuel from organic waste

September 12, 2018 |

In Russia, a chemist from RUDN synthesized new catalysts with ruthenium (Ru) nanoparticles for producing biofuel from organic biowaste. Nanocatalysts support more intensive and sustained reactions than the compounds currently available in the market. The results of the study were published in the ChemSusChem journal. He works on the synthesis of gamma-valerolactone (GVL) together with his Chinese […]
