Ruthenium on carbon (Ru/C) can be used as a heterogeneous noble metal catalyst for the hydrotreatment of fast pyrolysis of oil derived from lignocellulosic biomass. It can be used in combination with an Amberlyst heat resistant ion-exchange resin for the hydrogenolysis of glycerol to 1,2-propanediol.

The increasing importance of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) for the assessment of ovarian reserve requires accurate AMH measurements. There have been conflicting results about the reliability of currently existing manual AMH assays. Development of a high sensitive, fast and fully automated...
Hydrogen is one of the most important resources in providing food, fuel, and chemical products for our everyday life. Sustainable catalytic hydrogen production from bioethanol has gained significant attention in recent years due to globally diminishing fossil fuel supplies, which have necessitated the search for new chemical feedstocks.
