Cortright Randy D, Dumesic James A: Method for producing bio-fuel that integrates heat from carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions to drive biomass gasification reactions. Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, Cortright Randy D, Dumesic James A, LEONE Joseph T, October 4, 2007: WO/2007/112314 (14 worldwide citation)

A low-temperature catalytic process for converting biomass (preferably glycerol recovered from the fabrication of bio-diesel) to synthesis gas (i.e., H2/CO gas mixture) in an endothermic gasification reaction is described. The synthesis gas is used in exothermic carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions, ...

Dumesic James A, Roman Leshkov Yuriy, Chheda Juben N: Catalytic process for producing furan derivatives from carbohydrates in a biphasic reactor. Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, Dumesic James A, Roman Leshkov Yuriy, Chheda Juben N, LEONE Joseph T, December 21, 2007: WO/2007/146636 (13 worldwide citation)

Described is a catalytic process for converting sugars to furan derivatives (e.g. 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, furfural, dimethylfuran, etc.) using a biphasic reactor containing a reactive aqueous phase and an organic extracting phase. The process provides a cost-effective route for producing di-substit ...
