About our article:“Selective redox photocatalysis: Is there any chance for solar bio-refineries?”. Juan Carlos Colmenares in: Current Opinion in Green and Sustainable Chemistry, 15 (2019) 38 – 46.
This mini-review succinctly describes the recent progresses in selective heterogeneous photocatalysis for the preparation of high value organics from lignocellulose-based waste as well as the perspective use of its fundamentals to develop a new concept of solar bio-refineries highlighting the challenges for the future and some needs to innovate. The main recent uses of heterogeneous photocatalysis in the field of green synthesis procedures for making key value organics starting from a suitable depolymerization of lignocellulose trough a downstream processing is giving a lot of hope to develop the concept of a bio-refinery based on solar photocatalysis.
