Federal Room A (Capital Hilton)
Catalysis (pc)
Catalysis: Session II
This session will address new methods to reduce the energy intensity of chemical processes with catalysts that are highly selective and provide rapid reaction times without the use of substances as hazardous to humans and the environment. Attendees will learn about advances in the development of multifunctional catalysts, novel catalysts with preferential solubility in green solvents, single-site catalysis, catalyst separation and recycling, use of enzymes in novel chemical transformations, mechanisms of enzymatic reactions in the design of biomimetic analogues, single-site heterogeneous catalysts, substrate-selective conversion of complex materials, design and synthesis of chiral catalysts and novel catalytic materials. Engineering and commercialization issues also will be addressed.
