A novel method to produce biobased acrylonitrile [Registered]

Researchers at the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have developed a novel catalytic method to produce renewable acrylonitrile using 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP), which can be biologically produced from sugars. This hybrid biological-catalytic process offers an alternative to the conventional petrochemical production method and achieves unprecedented acrylonitrile yields.…
