Light-Based Chemistry Could Increase Energy Density of a Renewable Fuel

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Jan. 27, 2020 — Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory used photochemical [2 + 2] cycloaddition to upgrade biomass-derived acetone — common nail polish remover — to higher-mass hydrocarbons, and produced a product that can be blended with conventional jet fuel for more energy-efficient flying. Starting with acetone derived from plants, scientists at Los Alamos are converting this simple molecule into jet fuel using a novel process that uses light. This has the potential to be blended with regular jet fuel to offer a greener option. Courtesy of Los Alamos National Laboratory. ...Read full article
