Furfural and Hydrogen Production from Biomass: Integrating Chemical and Electrochemical Routes

Xiang Research.png


The goal of this project is to leverage electrochemical and thermocatalytic processes to convert biomass into furfural, hydrogen, and other high-value chemicals.


  • Mild operating conditions

  • Modular production

  • Conversion of waste to high-value products

We are interested in the investigation of the mechanism of the reactions, integrating different types of biomass, engineering advanced electrocatalysts, and designing hybrid electro/thermal reactors.
