About this Research Topic
The efficient use of natural resources for the synthesis of value-added products such as pharmaceutical compounds, drug molecules, fine and specialty chemicals is significant for the sustainable development of our society, green process technology, human health, and mitigation of climate change.
Taking into consideration that natural resources such as lignocellulosic biomass on the planet are limited, it is significant that its utilization is rational for the benefit of mankind, human civilization, protection of our health, planet, and environment. Furthermore, research in green technology using supported metal nanoparticle catalysts, for the production of new drug molecules, pharmaceutical compounds, specialty, and fine chemicals has become of immense importance. The application of supported metal nanoparticle catalysts can enhance the selectivity to desired value-added products and inhibit the formation of byproducts. Furthermore, the utilization of supported metal nanoparticles has the ability to increase the efficiency of the rational use of natural resources. Unique properties of supported metal nanoparticle catalysts are easy separation after the completion of reactions, regeneration, and reusability.
In this Research Topic we invite Researchers to submit Original Research, Reviews and Mini-Reviews exploring, but not limited to, the following research areas:
• New methods for synthesis of supported metal nanoparticles
• Physicochemical characterization of supported metal nanoparticles using different techniques
• Catalytic applications of supported metal nanoparticles for drug molecules, pharmaceutical compounds, specialty, and fine chemicals
• Application of different types of lignocellulosic biomass using various reactions
• Reaction mechanism for the valorization of lignocellulosic biomass
• Catalyst deactivation, regeneration, and reuse of catalytic materials
Keywords: Support metal Catalysts, nanocatalysts, value added product synthesis, catatlyst synthesis, biomass utilization, lignocellulosic biomass
