Green procedures for the selective aqueous-phase hydrogenation of biomass-derived levulinic acid to γ-valerolactone : innovative design for catalytic recycle and regeneration

This Thesis work was aimed at studying the catalytic upgrading of an important biomass derived platform chemical such as levulinic acid (LA). In particular, the hydrogenation/dehydration of levulinic acid (LA) to γ-valerolactone (GVL) was considered with a major focus on the implementation of origin...
