CEBC Manuscript Featured as Green Chemistry 'Hot Article'

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

Green Chemistry, a high-impact and highly cited journal, selected a manuscript submitted by researchers at CEBC as a ‘Hot Article’ for their homepage. Expert reviewers in the field rated this article as very significant in the quest for developing alternative sustainable technologies.  The featured article is free to access for one month.

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.
