Highly selective hydrogenation of furfural over supported Pt nanoparticles under mild conditions (2015)
Journal Article
Taylor, M. J., Durndell, L. J., Isaacs, M. A., Parlett, C. M., Wilson, K., Lee, A. F., & Kyriakou, G. (2016). Highly selective hydrogenation of furfural over supported Pt nanoparticles under mild conditions. Applied catalysis. B, Environmental, 180, 580-585 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apcatb.2015.07.006

The selective liquid phase hydrogenation of furfural to furfuryl alcohol over Pt nanoparticles supported on SiO₂, ZnO, γ-Al2O₃, CeO₂ is reported under extremely mild conditions. Ambient hydrogen pressure, and temperatures as low as 50 °C are shown su... Read More about Highly selective hydrogenation of furfural over supported Pt nanoparticles under mild conditions.

Microwave-assisted hydrothermal synthesis of carbon monolith via a soft-template method using resorcinol and formaldehyde as carbon precursor and pluronic F127 as template (2014)
Journal Article
Elaigwu, S. E., Kyriakou, G., Prior, T. J., & Greenway, G. M. (2014). Microwave-assisted hydrothermal synthesis of carbon monolith via a soft-template method using resorcinol and formaldehyde as carbon precursor and pluronic F127 as template.

A new microwave-assisted hydrothermal synthesis of carbon monolith is reported in this work. The process uses microwave heating at 100 °C under acidic condition by employing a triblock copolymer F127 as the template, and resorcinol–formaldehyde as th...
