New quasiparticle unveiled in room temperature semiconductors
Physicists from Switzerland and Germany have unveiled fingerprints of the long-sought particle known as Mahan exciton in the room temperature optical response of the popular methylammonium lead halide perovskites.
Catalyst Evolution Effects: Xylitol from Acetal-Stabilized Xylose
Our paper demonstrating how catalyst evolution leads to increases in xylitol productin from acetal-stabilized xylose was published in ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering! In this article, Questell-Santiago et al. demonstrate a catalytic process for xylitol production based on the volatility and unique reactivity of diformylxylose (DFX), which can be produced at near theoretical yield from biomass and, contrary to xylose, can be easily purified by distillation.
