Conversion of glucose to fructose over Sn and Ga-doped zeolite Y in methanol and water media

Zeolite Y was used as a support for the synthesis of Sn and Ga doped zeolites aimed at the isomerization of glucose to fructose. Though these materials are inactive in water, they are active in methanol and we could ascertain a reaction pathway involving a hydride shift for the interconversion of glucose to fructose andContinue reading “Conversion of glucose to fructose over Sn and Ga-doped zeolite Y in methanol and water media”

PhD Award for Baozhai Han

Our group member Baozhai Han has successfully defended his PhD dissertation entitled: “Silver based catalysts for the selective oxidation of cyclic hydrocarbons under mild conditions”. Well done Dr. Han! The direct selective oxidation of hydrocarbons is an important process both in industry and academia to produce oxygen containing compounds by the transformation of petrochemical feedstock,Continue reading “PhD Award for Baozhai Han”
