    State-of-the-art catalysts for oxygen reduction and evolution reactions (ORR and OER), which form the basis of advanced fuel cell applications, are based on noble metals such as Pt and Ir. However, high cost and scarcity of noble metals have led to an increased demand of earth-abundant metal oxide catalysts, especially for bifunctional activity in ORR and OER. The fact that Pt and Ir or C, the cost-effective alternatives suggested, do not display satisfactory bifunctional activity has also helped in turning the interest to metal oxides which are stable under both ORR and OER conditions. Brownmillerite A2B2O5 type oxides are promising as bifunctional oxygen electrocatalysts because of intrinsic structural features, viz., oxygen vacancy and catalytic activity of the B-site transition metal. In this study, Co-doped Ca2Fe2O5 compounds are synthesized by the solid state method and structurally analyzed by Rietveld refinement of powder X-ray diffraction data. The compound Ca2Fe2O5, crystallizing in the Pcmn space group has alternative FeO4 tetrahedral and FeO6 octahedral layers. Its Co-doped analogue, Ca2Fe1.75Co0.25O5, also crystallizes in the same space group with both tetrahedral and octahedral Fe positions substituted with Co. However, Ca2FeCoO5 in the Pbcm space group shows interlayer ordering with Co-rich octahedra connected to Fe-rich tetrahedra and vice versa. Oxygen bifunctional activities of these catalysts are monitored by rotating disc electrode and rotating ring disc electrode techniques in alkaline media. A close analysis of the ORR and OER was conducted through comparison of various parameters such as onset potential, current density, halfwave potential, and other kinetic parameters, which suggests that the presence of Co in the B site aids in achieving better bifunctional activity and bulk conductivity. In addition, Co(II)/Co(III) redox systems and their comparative concentrations also play a decisive role in enhancing the activity.

    Biomass-derived furfural (FAL) is the platform chemical for synthesis of various value-added chemicals and fuels. One of the FAL-derived chemicals, i.e., 2-methylfuran (2-MF), is the potential biofuel due to its attractive chemical and physical properties. Various methods are reported for conversion of FAL to 2-MF which are operated at high temperature and high H2 pressure. In present work, one pot catalytic method was developed in batch mode process for conversion of FAL to 2-MF. Reactions are carried out in the presence of PtCo/C bimetallic catalyst under 0.5–1 MPa H2 pressure. Monometallic and bimetallic catalysts with different Pt and Co loading were prepared by wet impregnation method, and catalysts were characterized by transmission electron microscopy, BET surface area, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and inductive coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy techniques. 59% 2-MF yield was achieved at 180 °C and lower (0.5 MPa) H2 pressure.

    Post-synthesis modification by alkali treatment was employed for the synthesis of hierarchical K/LTL zeolites with varying degree of mesoporosity. For the alkali treatment, the concentration of aqueous KOH solution was changed from 0.3 to 2.8 M keeping the quantity per gram of zeolite fixed. The influence of the alkali concentration on the chemical composition, powder XRD crystallinity, morphology, basicity, and the textural properties of resultant hierarchical zeolites was investigated. Variation in the concentration of KOH solution was found to control the degree of preferential desilication with the preserved structural fingerprint of K/LTL zeolite. As a result, the generation of mesoporosity was observed along with 1) the decrease in the Si/Al ratio and percentage relative crystallinity, and 2) an increase in BET surface area and mesopore volume. 27Al MAS-NMR results showed that all the aluminum atoms present in the tetrahedral coordination after alkali treatment, which provides an elegant approach for significantly increasing the basic sites in the hierarchical zeolites. As a heterogeneous catalyst, the hierarchical K/LTL zeolites demonstrated the improved performance in the hydrogenation of xylose to xylitol as compared to the parent K/LTL zeolite. The different process parameters were assessed in order to maximize the hydrogenation activity. Among all the hierarchical zeolites, the enhanced catalytic activity was shown by the hierarchical K/LTL prepared by using 1.5 M KOH solution when it is used along with the 3.5 wt% platinum loaded ?-Al2O3 catalyst. This optimum activity may be attributed to the higher surface area, accessible basic sites, nano-sized Pt on ?-Al2O3, and the development of substantial intracrystalline mesoporosity for the enhanced molecular diffusion of reactant to and from the hierarchical zeolite with better-preserved crystallinity.

    Isolation of organosolv lignins (ORGLs, water:ethanol, 180oC, 1h, 93±5% mass balance) from various lignocellulosic materials like rice husk (RH), wheat straw (WS), bagasse (BG) & wood chips (WC) was done and experimental evidences are provided to perceive the differences in the structures of isolated lignins. To achieve this on bulk level, lignins were characterized by XRD, GPC, TGA & elemental analysis and on molecular level using UV-Vis, ATR, 1D/2D HSQC NMR techniques. Besides isolated lignins, crop wastes and pulps were also characterized to divulge details on their properties. It was revealed that lignins have varying concentrations of sinapyl (S), coniferyl (G) and p-coumaryl alcohols (H) and tricin (T) moieties. While, Tricin (T) type lignin moieties are observed only in RH and WS derived lignins, RH derived lignin has higher concentration of side chains than other isolated lignins. Additionally, it is discovered that most lignins have G as main moiety.

    The platform chemical, furfural (FAL), is obtained from C5 stream of biomass, and effective conversion into various chemicals including cyclopentanone (CPO) would find many industrial applications. It is desirable to convert FAL to CPO under low H2 pressure with high selectivity. In the current work, bimetallic catalysts with Pt as the base metal supported on carbon are evaluated in the synthesis of CPO using a biphasic solvent system. By tuning the solvent ratio, with toluene/water (3 : 4 v/v), 75% yield of CPO is achieved under 1 MPa H2 at 180 °C. The difference in solubility of the substrate, intermediates and products, along with the optimum ratio of Pt and Co metals plays a crucial role in achieving better yields.

    Sugar alcohols (xylitol and sorbitol) produced from biomass derived xylose and glucose finds wide industrial application in food and pharmaceutical Industries. Hence it is worth to produce these sugar alcohols under mild reaction conditions at low temperature and low H2 pressure with concentrated feed (sugar) solution. In this work, Ru metal supported on carbon was used as a catalyst to convert xylose and glucose to yield xylitol and sorbitol respectively. 98% yield of xylitol and sorbitol was achieved under 0.5 MPa H2, at 100 °C. Under low H2 pressure (0.2 MPa) at 100 °C, 94% yield of xylitol and 91% yield of sorbitol was obtained. 98% yield of sugar alcohols (xylitol and sorbitol) was achieved with 40 wt% sugar solution under 1 MPa H2.

    An approach to the synthesis of KLTL-MCM-41 micro-mesoporous composites varying molar SiO2/Al2O3 ratio (20-8) was originated by following the green technology. The synthesis was based on recycling of waste mother liquor containing preformed KLTL zeolite crystals and unutilized reagents. The micro-mesoporous composites consist of preformed KLTL zeolite crystals through hydrothermal treatment in the first step. In the second step, the siliceous mother liquor was transformed into the mesoporous MCM-41. The physico-chemical properties of the KLTL-MCM-41 micro-mesoporous composites were determined by PXRD, ICP-OES, FTIR, CO2-TPD, 27Al MAS-NMR, TEM-EDX, HRTEM, and N2 adsorption-desorption measurements. The mesopores properties of KLTL-MCM-41 composites were depended on the molar SiO2/Al2O3 ratio. The characterization results accounted the following conclusions with decreasing SiO2/Al2O3 molar ratio: 1) lowering the orderliness of mesophase, 2) decreasing the wall thickness of mesopores, and 3) decreasing BET surface area and pore volume. 27Al MAS-NMR showed that only tetrahedrally coordinated aluminium encountered for zeolite KLTL. Moreover, the total amount and the strength of the basic sites of KLTL-MCM-41 micro-mesoporous composites owing to exchangeable potassium content (Al/K ratio-1) decreased in the order: 8 MMC > 10 MMC > 15 MMC > 20 MMC. The catalytic activity of the synthesized micro-mesoporous samples was tested as a solid base for the hydrogenation of xylose to sugar alcohols.

    To date, density functional theory (DFT) is one of the most accurate and yet practical theory to gain atomistic insight about materials properties. Although successful, the computational cost of it is the main hurdle even today. In recent years, there have been a few attempts of combining DFT with machine learning (ML) to curtail the computational cost without compromising accuracy. However, the success of this approach depends critically on the choice of the descriptors. In this letter, we demonstrate that, based on {\it only} interatomic distances as descriptors, our ML model predicts interaction energy between an adsorbate and a cluster. We have employed this model to compute the potential energy surface experienced by a test charge in the vicinity of a cluster with absolute mean error (AME) ? 0.04 eV at minimal computational cost. Our extensive DFT calculations provides the rationale of achieving improved accuracy and a proof of concept that our ML model picks up the essence of Hohenberg-Kohn's first theorem.

    Increasing demand of ethylene oxide and the cost of versatile chemical ethene has been a driving force for understanding mechanism of epoxidation to develop highly selective catalytic process. Direct epoxidation is a proposed mechanism which in theory provides 100% selectivity. A key aspect of this mechanism is an electrophilic oxygen (Oele) species forming on the Ag surface. In the past two and half decades, large number of theoretical and experimental investigations have tried to elucidate formation of Oele on Ag surface with little success. Equipped with this rich literature on Ag-O interactions, we investigate the same using periodic DFT calculations to further understand how silver surface and oxygen interact with each other from a chemical standpoint. Based on energetics, Löwdin charges, topologies and pdos data described in this study, we scrutinize the established notions of Oele. Our study provides no evidence in support of Oele being an atomic species nor a diatomic molecular species. In fact, a triatomic molecular species described in this work bears multiple signatures which are very convincing evidence for considering it as the most sought for electrophilic entity.

    Digestive ripening (DR) is a process where a polydisperse nanocrystal (NC) system is converted into a monodisperse one with the aid of thermal heating of NCs in the presence of an excess surface-active organic ligand called digestive ripening agent (DRA) and a solvent. Here, we demonstrate that the solvent?DRA compatibility influences the final size and size distribution of the NCs in a significant manner. Accordingly, in this study, using the DR of gold NCs as the test case with alkanethiol (decanethiol/C10HT) and fluorinated thiol (1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluorodecanethiol/C10FT) as DRA’s and toluene and ?,?,?- trifluoro-toluene (TFT) and their combination as solvents, we clearly establish that alkanethiols result in best-quality NCs after DR in toluene while the fluorinated thiols provide reasonably monodispersed NCs in TFT. Our results also ascertain that even when DR is carried out in a mixture of solvents, as long as the compatible solvent is the major component, the DR process results in reasonably monodisperse NCs. As soon as the amount of uncompatible solvent exceeds a threshold limit, there is perceptible increase in the polydispersity of the NCs. We conclude that the polarity of the solvent, which affects the buildup of ligated atoms/clusters, plays a key role in controlling the size distributions of the NCs.

    The selective production of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is important, and it is difficult with glucose substrates in a water solvent. Here we demonstrate a selective method for glucose-to-HMF conversion using the combined catalysis of bone char and 1-methyl-3-(3-sulfopropyl)-imidazolium hydrogen sulfate acidic ionic liquid catalysts with a high HMF selectivity (54%) in water.

    Designing of efficient catalyst for the valorization of lignin is a topic of long neglect due to intrinsic properties of lignin. We show designing of an efficient, stable and recyclable Immobilized?Brønsted acidic ionic liquid (I?BAIL), which was further used as a solid acid catalyst for the depolymerization of lignin. The synthesized I?BAIL catalyst with sulfonic acid (–SO3H) groups was found to be stable until 250 °C and has 42.2 wt.% loading of BAIL anchored on silica framework. The detailed characterization (elemental, Thermogravimetric analysis, Fourier transformation?Infrared, Nuclear magnetic resonance) of catalyst disclosed formation of strong covalent bond between Si and carbon of BAIL, which in turn is responsible for achieving a stable catalyst. The catalyst could successfully depolymerize range of lignin substrates with high molecular weight (60000 Dalton) at 200 °C in 1 h to achieve 90% yield of tetrahydrofuran soluble products with good mass balance. The formation of products and correlation of products with lignin was achieved with the help of Nuclear magnetic resonance, gel permeation chromatography, gas chromatography, gas chromatography?mass spectrometry, high performance liquid chromatography etc.
