Combining Metabolic Engineering and Electrocatalysis: Application to the Production of Polyamides from Sugar.

Abstract

Biorefineries aim to convert biomass into a spectrum of products ranging from biofuels to specialty chemicals. To achieve economically sustainable conversion, it is crucial to streamline the catalytic and downstream processing steps. In this work, a route that combines bio- and electrocatalysis to convert glucose into bio-based unsaturated nylon-6,6 is… (More)
