Reaction mechanisms for the heterogeneous hydrogenolysis of biomass-derived glycerol to propanediols

Posted on 24. February, 2014.

Biomass-derived glycerol is emerging as a renewable, cheap and versatile feedstock for the production of a variety of chemicals and fuels. In particular, hydrogenolysis of glycerol to other value-added chemicals over heterogeneous catalysts has been extensively studied in the past few years. The most desired products arising from this process are propanediols, i.e. 1,2-propanediol and 1,3-propanediol.

A Kinetic model of proton transport in a multi-redox centre protein: cytochrome c oxidase

Posted on 21. February, 2014.

Cytochrome c Oxidase (CcO) is the final complex of the respiratory chain. Its purpose is to use the energy gained by the reduction of oxygen to water to pump protons against a difference of electrochemical potentials across the mitochondrial inner membrane.

An outline of object-oriented philosophy

Posted on 21. February, 2014.

The term “object-oriented philosophy” was initially borrowed in jest from computer science, but took on a life of its own. It is one variant of a broader philosophical trend known as speculative realism. Together these schools raise interesting questions about the relationship between philosophy and science, and the role of metaphysics in human knowledge.

First Principles Kinetics Of n-Octyl Radicals

Posted on 18. February, 2014.

Being the initial product from radical attack on alkanes, alkyl radicals are important intermediates in the decomposition of organic fuels. It has long been known that alkyl radicals reactions play an important role in the combustion and atmospheric degradation pathways of traditional fuels as well as a wide variety of other chemical processes.
