- ... The aim of the study was to investigate hydrothermal liquefaction of Mulberry bark in sub-critical ethanol-water co-solvents (S-C-E-W) (50:50, v/v) and sub-critical water (S-C-W) with K2CO3 as catalyst at fixed condition (300 °C and 60 min). The derived bio-oil was analyzed by FTIR and GC-MS, FTIR and XRD were used to characterize Mulberry bark and the solid residues. The results showed that lique ...
