Immobilised catalysts for continuous reactions in supercritical carbon dioxide
Kondor, Bernadett (2010) Immobilised catalysts for continuous reactions in supercritical carbon dioxide. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This Thesis investigates immobilised metal- and biocatalysts for continuous reactions in scC02. Chemical transformations with high atom economy and low E-factor (amount of waste per kg of product) are highly desired in the green chemical viewpoint. One of the approaches to decrease the production of waste is the use of catalysis (possibly highly selective). Another approach is the use of a 'green' reaction medium as a substitute for traditional solvents that can reduce the production of harmful solvent waste. How this Thesis encompasses by these topics is discussed in Chapter 1.
