    For biorefinery concept to become commercially viable, it is essential to value-add lignin which is the only naturally available aromatic polymer. A one-pot depolymerization of lignin into reactive substituted phenolic compounds (platform chemicals and octane enhancers) with low molecular weightis of paramount interest and for that development of environmentally benign method is necessary. Herein we report, depolymerization of high molecular weight lignin (60,000 Da) over various recyclable solid base catalysts at 250 oC in 1 h. Under this conditions, most of the zeolitic catalysts (NaX, NaY, NaP) showed very high yields of low molecular weight products than other catalysts (MgO, CaO, HT, HAP). But particularly, over NaX maximum yield (51%) of low molecular weight products was achieved. Identification and quantification of products was done by GC, GC-MS, HPLC, LC-MS, CHNS, NMR and FT-IR techniques. The revelation of retention of most of the functional groups on products present in lignin is done by FT-IR studies. It is observed that efficiencies of catalysts were dependent on pH, cation, type and concentration of basic sites etc. A unique study on products adsorption capacities on solids was done and it is recognized that as strength of basic sites increases adsorption enhances.

    One of the biomass derived significant chemical furfural (FAL) can be hydrogenated to yield industrially important platform chemical, furfuryl alcohol (FOL). Although heterogeneous catalysts based methods are known to yield FOL from dilute solutions of FAL, those mainly operate at higher temperatures and/or high pressures of hydrogen and in presence of organic solvents. In this work, we employ bimetallic PtCo/C catalysts with varying metal concentrations to achieve maximum possible FOL yield (100%) at 35 oC under 0.1 MPa H2 in water. With concentrated FAL (40 wt%) at 50 oC and under 1 MPa H2 pressure, 86% yield for FOL was observed. Moreover, efficient recycling of catalyst in at least 4 runs with marginal loss in activity due to handling error and isolation of FOL in pure form confirmed by NMR and HPLC is attractive. The characterization of catalysts with several physico-chemical techniques (XRD, TEM, XPS, ICP,TPR) reveal the presence of electron rich Pt and ionic Co species in proximity with each other and those work synergistically to facilitate accomplishment of maximum possible yield of FOL under ambient conditions and in water medium.

    Valorization of hemicellulose to valuable chemicals such as C5 sugars and furfural in the one-pot fashion is crucial. In this work, acidic ionic liquids in presence of water showed high yields of C5 sugars (>80%) with >99% conversion of hemicelluloses at 160 °C. With water+toluene biphasic solvent system, within 4 h, 85% furfural yield was obtained directly from hemicellulose in a one-pot fashion using the catalytic amount of 1-methyl-3-(3-sulfopropyl)-imidazolium hydrogen sulfate. It is seen that BAILs perform better than solid acid [Faujasite and Mordenite zeolites; ion exchange resin, Amberlyst-15] and mineral catalysts [HCl and H2SO4]. The higher activity of BAILs compared to solid acids and mineral acid was correlated to Hammett acidity function (Ho) and ion-dipole type of interaction. The catalysts were characterized using NMR (1H and 13C), elemental analysis and TGA to confirm that those are stable under reaction conditions and thus were recyclable.

    The aim of this work was to study the difference in properties of lignins, those (organosolv lignins (ORGLs, 12±3% yield and 93±5% mass balance) were isolated from diverse rice husk (RH) substrates using organosolv procedure (water:ethanol, H2SO4) carried out at 180?C for 1 h. To identify the possible alterations in lignin structures several bulk and molecular level advanced characterization tools were employed. Even though lignins were extracted using common isolation procedure from three varieties of similar species of RH; from XRD, GPC, and elemental analysis it was found that those have comparable properties on bulk level. But molecular level analysis conducted using UV-Vis, ATR, 1D/2D HSQC NMR techniques could help disclose that isolated lignins have varying concentrations of G, H, S and T substructures. Additionally, the double bond equivalence of 4.4-4.7 reveals that few of the aromatic rings are devoid of substituent.

    Semiconductor nanoparticles surface modified with organic molecules capable of visible light absorption and effectively transferring the electrons to the catalytic sites have the potential to be good photocatalysts. ZnO nanoparticles of size ?3 nm are grafted with two azonaphthols, one conjugated and the other non-conjugated. The photophysical properties of modified ZnO indicate an effective electron transfer from the conjugated azonaphthol to ZnO but not in the case of the non-conjugated molecule. It is also observed from lifetime studies that the conjugated molecule stabilises the defect sites on ZnO nanoparticles. It is possible that excited electrons from the conjugated molecule are transferred to specific defect sites in ZnO. This apparently does not occur in the non-conjugated molecule, bringing to focus the importance of the photophysical characteristics of organic modifiers in designing visible light active photocatalysts.

    Oxygen reduction reaction is increasingly being studied in oxide systems due to advantages ranging from cost effectiveness to desirable kinetics. Oxygen deficient oxides like brownmillerites are known to enhance ORR activity by providing oxygen adsorption sites. In parallel, N and Fe doping in C materials and consequent presence of catalytically active complex species like C-Fe-N is also suggested to be good strategies for designing ORR active catalysts. A combination of these features in a N doped Fe containing brownmillerite can be envisaged to present synergistic effects to improve the activity. This is conceptualized in this report through enhanced activity of N doped Ca2Fe2O5 brownmillerite when compared to its oxide parents. N doping is proved using neutron diffraction, UV-vis spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and X-ray absorption spectroscopy. Electrical conductivity is also found to be enhanced by N doping which influences the activity. Electrochemical characterizations using cyclic voltammetry, rotating disc electrode and rotating ring disk electrode indicates an improved oxygen reduction activity in N-doped brownmillerite with a 10 mV positive shift in the onset potential. RRDE measurements show that both the compound exhibit 4-electron reduction pathways with lower H2O2 production in N-doped system also N-doped sample exhibited better stability. The observations will enable better designing of ORR catalysts which are stable and cost effective.
