Manuscript One of the Top Ten Most Accessed Green Chemistry Articles in August

Friday, October 15, 2010

A new technological discovery reported by CEBC researchers in the journal Green Chemistry was amongst the top ten most accessed articles for this journal in August. Green Chemistry, a high-impact and highly cited journal, also identified this same publication as a ‘Hot Article’ for its homepage last March. Expert reviewers in the field rated it as very significant in the quest for developing alternative sustainable technologies.

The article describes a more efficient, less polluting process for making a key ingredient in polyester, called terephthalic acid. Recently, researchers at CEBC have advanced the technological discovery reported in this article even further. 

Zuo, X.; Niu, F.; Snavely, K.; Subramaniam, B.; Busch, D.H. "Liquid phase oxidation of p-xylene to terephthalic acid at medium-high temperatures:  multiple benefits of CO2-expanded liquids." Green Chem., 2010, 12, 260 – 267.
