Graphene and graphene-like based materials in biomass conversion: Paving the way to the future

Abstract

The materials based on graphene and its derivatives are in a dual relationship with biomass: (i) they can be synthesized using biomass or its platform chemicals and (ii) they can be employed as efficient catalysts or supports for nanoparticulate catalysts for catalytic biomass conversion. In this review article we are discussing methods of the catalyst syntheses using top-down and bottom-up approaches as well as different synthetic pathways where all or some catalyst components are prefabricated or the whole catalyst is prepared in-situ from small molecules. We identify key factors influencing the efficiency of the catalysts formed and suggesting our perspective for the development of this field.
