- ... A new process based on aqueous-phase dehydration/hydrogenation (APD/H) has been developed to directly produce liquid alkanes (C₇ – ₉), which are the main components of fossil gasoline, from cellulose in one single batch reactor without the consumption of external hydrogen (H₂). In this new process, part of the cellulose is first converted to in situ H₂ by steam reforming (SR) in the steam gas phas ...
