Our collaborative work between four different research groups and two countries (France, Spain) is accepted for publicaiton in Chemical Science Journal (Impact factor 9.556). Using an unconventional activation technique (high frequency ultrasound), we show that H-radicals produced during the sonolysis of water are crucial for the selective and catalyst-free depolymerization of cellulose to glucose.

Our work on the Syneristic Effect of High-Frequency Ultrasound with Cupric Oxide Catalyst Resulting in a Selectivity Switch in Glucose Oxidation under Argon is accepted for publication in the prestigious  Journal of American Chemical Society (JACS)!. Here, we demonstrated that, metal oxide interactions with radicals generated from the sonolysis of water, in the presence of glucose inhibits glucose ring-opening, favoring strongly the oxidaiton of glucose at the C-6 position. A phenomenon which is difficut to achieve in classical conversional catalysis. Here is a link to the paper! https://doi.org/10.1021/jacs.9b06824

Our recent work on biomass conversion is accepted for publication in Green Chemistry (Impact factor 9.12). Using an integrated modeling and experimental approach, we developed a stable and sustainable process to convert glycerol, a by-product or biodiesel, to highly valued dicarboxylic acids. Here is the link for the article .

Our work in the area of ​​biomass conversion is accepted for publication in the prestigious Angewandte Chemie journal. Using an integrated modeling (performed by Dr. Thang in our group) and experimental (performed by Dr. Amaniampong) approach, we explained the crucial role of lattice oxygen in catalyzing biomass reactions.
