      Cecilia, Juan A.; García Sancho, Cristina; Merida-Robles, Josefa Maria; Santamaria-Gonzalez, Jose; Moreno-Tost, Ramon; [et al.] (2015-09-02)
      Hoy en día es necesaria la búsqueda de nuevas aplicaciones a los excedentes de glicerol provenientes de la industria del biodiésel, siendo su deshidratación a acroleína, un intermedio muy importante y versátil en la industria ...
    • Porous aluminosilicates as acid catalysts for glucose dehydration to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural 

      Moreno Recio, Mercedes; Moreno-Tost, Ramon; Merida-Robles, Josefa Maria; Santamaria-Gonzalez, Jose; Maireles-Torres, Pedro Jesús (2015-05-12)
      In the present work, the catalytic behavior of micro- and mesoporous aluminosilicates in glucose dehydration is compared. In this sense, different commercial zeolites (Beta, Y and ZSM-5, in their protonic form) and ...
    • Synergic effect between inorganic salts and gamma-Al2O3 for xylose dehydration to furfural 

      Fúnez-Núñez, Inmaculada; García-Sancho, Cristina; Cecilia, Juan Antonio; Moreno-Tost, Ramon; Serrano Cantador, Luis; [et al.] (2018-07-17)
      Lignocellulosic biomass, with a high content of hemicellulose, is the main source of pentoses, from which biofuels and value-added chemicals can be produced. Amongst the latter, 2-Furfuraldehyde (furfural, FUR) is the only ...
    • Valorización de huesos de aceituna para la obtención de furfural en presencia de gamma- Al2O3 y CaCl2 

      Fúnez Núñez, Inmaculada; García Sancho, Cristina; Cecilia, Juan Antonio; Moreno-Tost, Ramon; Serrano Cantador, Luis; [et al.] (2019-07-02)
      En la actualidad, se considera que la biomasa lignocelulósica es una materia prima sostenible muy prometedora, ya que es la única fuente de carbono renovable que no compite con la cadena alimentaria. A partir de ella puede ...
    • Valorization of carbohydrates: dehydration of sorbitol to isosorbide in the presence of acidic zeolites 

      Santamaria-Gonzalez, Jose; Lerena Gil, Isabel; Ginés Molina, María José; Merida-Robles, Josefa Maria; Moreno-Tost, Ramon; [et al.] (2015-10-16)
      Currently, the growing interest in the use of biomass as a renewable and sustainable raw material for the production of energy, chemicals and biofuels is driving the development of new catalytic processes and technologies ...
    • Valorization of olive stones to obtain furfural in the presence of gamma-Al2O3 and CaCl2 

      Fúnez Núñez, Inmaculada; García Sancho, Cristina; Cecilia, Juan Antonio; Moreno-Tost, Ramon; Serrano Cantador, Luis; [et al.] (2019-10-03)
      Furfural is considered as one of the 12 platform molecules derived from biomass for the synthesis of high value-added chemicals. It is mainly produced by acid-catalyzed dehydration ofpentoses, such as xylose, which can be ...
    • γ-Al2O3 as acid catalyst for dehydration of glucose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural 

      Funes Núñez, Inmaculada; García Sancho, Cristina; Santamaria-Gonzalez, Jose; Merida-Robles, Josefa Maria; Moreno-Tost, Ramon; [et al.] (2015-10-19)
      Currently, the search and development of sustainable feedstocks for chemicals derived from petrol have gained worldwide attraction because of the instability of the price of crude oil, the reduction of fossil oil reserves, ...
