Desulfurization by oxidation combined with extraction using acidic room-temperature ionic liquids

We describe a new desulfurization process based on use of an acidic ionic liquid, which is able to reduce the sulfur content of a model oil from 1600 ppm to less than 20 ppm.

Double metal cyanide catalysts bearing lactate esters as eco-friendly complexing agents for the synthesis of highly pure polyols

A green way of synthesizing double metal cyanide catalysts for the ring opening polymerization of propylene oxide has been developed by using environmentally friendly and nontoxic lactate esters as complexing agents, yielding highly pure polyether polyols.
