David Fisher Organic molecules containing nitrogen are prevalent in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, petrochemical and pigment industries. Not surprisingly, chemists spend a considerable amount of time and resources on the synthesis of amines.
John K. Henske, Chemical Engineering. Renewable chemicals derived from plant biomass (stems, stocks, and leaves, mainly composed of cellulose and lignin) are attractive sustainable alternatives to petroleum-based products.
Ying Wang The rapid development of carbonaceous nanomaterials (CNMs) will lead to increasingly high levels of CNMs in the environment.
Zhixun Wang Chemical processes converting ubiquitous C-H bonds and especially those of non-acidic ones into synthetically useful functional C-Y bonds, known as C-H functionalization/activation, offer highly attractive and inherently sustainable means to the synthesis of functional chemicals for various industrial applications
