CHAPTER 24

Noncovalent Interactions of Biogenic Impurities with Transition Metal Catalyst Surfaces

This chapter emphasizes the need for a fundamental understanding of the noncovalent interactions of amino acids with transition metal catalyst surfaces in aqueous systems. This understanding is essential for the growing development of the synthesis of bio-based fuels and chemicals using integrated fermentation and catalytic processing, wherein biogenic impurities (amino acids and protein residues) are observed to deactivate heterogeneous metal catalysts.
