Molecular Engineering for the Conversion of Biomass Derived Reactants to Fuels, Chemicals, and Materials


View this Opportunity's Website 


Description:
Environmental problems created by our dependence on fossil fuels, such as global climate change, are driving the search for renewable sources of energy, chemicals, and materials. While petroleum resources are highly concentrated in a few countries, biomass constitutes a more globally distributed resource. The PIRE research program serves to investigate critical steps in the chemical transformations of biomass-derived reactants into clean burnings fuels and other useful products.
