© 2017 Elsevier Ltd. Carbon-based sulphonated catalysts (CBSCs) were made from rice husk for biodiesel production. The CBSCs were prepared by microwave (MW) and conventional heating processes from the same feedstock. In both heating systems, the prep... Read More

Study of Pyridine-Mediated Electrochemical Reduction of CO2 to Methanol at High CO2 Pressure (2016)
Journal Article
Haywood, S. K., Rybchenko, S. I., Touhami, D., & Wadhawan, J. D. (2016). Study of Pyridine-Mediated Electrochemical Reduction of CO2 to Methanol at High CO2 Pressure. ChemSusChem, 9(13), (1660-1669). doi:10.1002/cssc.201600267. ISSN 1864-5631

© 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim The recently proposed highly efficient route of pyridine-catalyzed CO 2 reduction to methanol was explored on platinum electrodes at high CO 2 pressure. At 55 bar (5.5 MPa) of CO 2 , the bulk elec... Read More
