Missouri S&T researchers develop faster, cleaner, less expensive chemical reaction process

Posted by on February 6, 2020

A process developed by researchers at Missouri S&T could lead to cleaner, less expensive and more efficient production of pharmaceuticals, biomass fuels and other products that are made through chemical reactions. The research project is the first time the combined reaction-separation process has been performed without the use of metals or solvents. The research was published and highlighted with cover art in the journal Reaction Chemistry and Engineering, a publication of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
