Dr. Xiaoping Chen from Nanyang University of technology, Singapore, made an academic report

At 14:00 p.m. on November 12, Dr. Xiaoping Chen from Nanyang University of technology, Singapore, made an academic report entitled  Biomass conversion and upgrading over heterogeneous catalysts in Room 207, Floor 2, Experimental Building, Qishan Campus. Professor Renhui Qiu, dean of College of Material Engineering, presided over the meeting. More than 60 teachers, graduate students and international students attended the meeting.


Dr. Xiaoping Chen first introduced the significance of biomass conversion into high value-added chemicals and the reaction methods of directional conversion of cellulose in biomass. He introduced in detail that noble metal catalysts including Pt, Ru were loaded on commercial activated carbon. Pt and Ru catalysts under high pressure conditions were used to hydrocracking microcrystalline cellulose to prepare sorbitol efficiently and sorbitol was further converted into isosorbitol.


      Dr. Chen Xiaoping's report has wide prospect of industrial application. The teachers and students at the meeting have intense discussion with Dr. Chen Xiaoping.
