‘E-nose’ sniffs out mixtures of volatile organic compounds

Accurately distinguish xylene isomer mixtures


As paint thinner, ink and adhesives dry, they can release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can negatively impact health. Typically, one of those VOCs is xylene, which exists as three isomers with the same elements but slightly different arrangements. Because the isomers are so similar, ...

Researchers seek to re-use waste plastics to make valuable petrochemicals

“The produced ethylene and BTX aromatics from plastic upcycling can be used as feedstocks to re-make plastics”


Despite efforts to promote recycling and reuse of plastic materials, the plastic problem continues to be a global problem.West Virginia Universityengineers hope to debottleneck the remaining challenges for recycling of single-use plastic packaging by upcycling them into ...


Pure industrial chemicals by gasifying lignocellulosic biomass


VTT has demonstrated that lignocellulosic biomass can be successfully converted into pure BTX chemicals: benzene, toluene and xylene. The aim of this research is to enable the use of wood-based chemicals to replace crude oil in, for example, plastics, fuels, medicine and paints. Demand has grown ...


High-value Opportunities for Lignin

Recent technological breakthroughs in lignin extraction and conversion could change the course of the oil-based chemical industry


Addressing markets worth more than 130 billion dollars, lignin could become the main renewable aromatic resource for the chemical industry in the future. The first opportunity could emerge as early as 2015 from the direct substitution of phenol in most of its industrial applications: phenolic ...
