Synthesis of a Novel Biofuel

Using cellulose and bio-ethanol as starting materials, my group is exploring some of the acid-catalyzed pathways to combine these two renewable energy sources to access a novel biofuel that combines the beneficial properties of each component in a synergistic fashion. In particular, we are exploring some of the furanic products in attempts to make them more attractive, energy-dense biofuels.
