报告内容：The use of renewable feedstock such as carbon dioxide and terpene based monomers has witnessed un upsurge. In particular, the valorization of these abundant materials is currently creating a significant momentum in the area of chemical sciences with a focus on attractive alternatives for fossil fuel based technologies. In this seminar, the use of catalysis as a key enabling technology is discussed in order to upgrade CO2 and terpenes into value-added compounds such as fine chemicals and bio-based polymers. Current and new opportunities for renewable feedstock is discussed in terms of a transition towards a more sustainable way of production of chemicals of commercial and academic interest.
