Virtual Special Issue: Chemical Conversion of Biomass to Fine and Platform Chemicals

The Virtual Special Issue on “Chemical Conversion of Biomass to Fine and Platform Chemicals” points out the latest advances in the activation of complex biomass substrates for the efficient and selective production of petrochemical substitutes. The journal’s Editors hope that this virtual special issue will provide researchers with an exhaustive and inspiring representation of the current application of biomass in synthesis.

Read the Editorial by Stefano Protti (University of Pavia, Italy), Guest Editor and Early Career Board member of ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering.
