Abstract

Synthesis of fine and specialty chemicals involving heterogeneous catalysts is discussed according to the type of reactions (e.g., hydrogenation, oxidation, isomerization, etc.) for various biomass derived feedstocks (carbohydrates, lignans, phenols, flavonoids, tannins, and stilbenes, tall oil, and fatty acids).
