  • From Oleo Chemicals to Polymer: Bis-hydroaminomethylation as a Tool for the Preparation of a Synthetic Polymer from Renewables

    Resource-efficient bis-hydroaminomethylation of the castor oil derived renewables methyl 10-undecenoate and 10-undecene-1-ol with piperazine furnished linear, bifunctional molecules. A structured and sustainable path towards a novel polyester from these monomers was developed. Key to success was the selective crystallization of the linear product directly from the crude reaction mixture in ...

  • Saving Renewable Energy for a Rainy Day

    Despite advances in renewable energy technologies, one of the largest hurdles in their widespread adoption has been their intermittent reliability. Energy is only useful if it is available as the grid demands it, which is why concerns about carbon emissions are overridden in favor of the more dependable oil, coal and gas for baseload power. In order for renewable sources such as wind and solar ...

  • Sustainable improvement of drinking water quality by nanofiltration powered by renewable energy

    Desalination membrane technology is increasingly used for water production. However, the main disadvantage of desalination is related to energy consumption and CO2 emissions, so desalination powered by renewable energy (RE) is getting interest. In this study nanofiltration (NF) membranes have been used for drinking water quality improvement in a pilot plant (50 m3/day) powered by RE ...
