Iowa State engineers are exploring new approaches to produce biobased chemicals and fuels through electrochemistry. Molecules derived from biomass are typically highly oxygenated, and require chemical transformations before they can be used as fuels or for the production of chemical products. One common transformation is hydrogenation – that is the addition of hydrogen – which … Continue reading Li Group research advances bioderived products from renewable electricity
