Hydrothermal Carbon Materials for Heterogeneous Catalysis

In this chapter, the development of heterogeneous catalysts based on the hydrothermal carbonisation (HTC) platform will be introduced and discussed in the context of heteroatom doping (e.g. N and S), acid–base catalysis, briefly electrocatalysis, photocatalysis and traditional (e.g. hydrogenation, Knoevenagel, etc.) catalysis. Attention will also be paid to the variety of sustainable precursors that can be used to introduce the desired material functionality in the context of the intended catalytic application. The chapter intends to provide the reader with an introduction and overview of the flexibility of the HTC platform for catalyst synthesis including, as will be shown, a variety of innovative support materials, hybrids, and composites.
