As a renewable resource, the use of biomass resources has received wide attention from countries around the world. The use of chemical methods to efficiently transform biomass resources is considered to be one of the most effective ways to address energy and environmental crises. Therefore, the catalytic conversion of graduate materials into high value-added chemicals (especially with new environmental routes to replace existing technology routes) has very important theoretical and practical significance.
We use cellulose, lignin, glycerol, etc. as research objects to design high-efficiency catalysts and convert them into high value-added chemicals. We study key scientific issues and mechanisms in the process of biomass conversion, such as selective cracking of C-O bonds, optimization of hydrogenation catalyst design and preparation, and reaction parameters.
