Electrophotocatalytic diamination of vicinal C-H bonds

Double C–H aminationThe conversion of C–H bonds into C–N bonds is broadly useful in producing pharmaceutically important compounds from simple, readily available feedstocks. Shen and Lambert report a method to induce this reaction twice in a row at benzylic and neighboring alkyl carbon centers, using acetonitrile solvent as a convenient…

Fisterra Energy to invest in NewGens hydrogen project

Fis­ter­ra En­er­gy SLU has an­nounced a part­ner­ship with Ke­nes­jay Green Lim­it­ed (KGL) to pur­sue a po­ten­tial de­vel­op­ment of KGL’s first ma­jor hy­dro­gen project, New­Gen. The project is ex­pect­ed to pro­duce car­bon neu­tral and green hy­dro­gen as feed­stock for the Trinidad Ni­tro­gen Com­pa­ny’s (Trin­gen) am­mo­nia com­plex, which is co-owned by Yara…

View: Bio data of a wonder bio fuel

Representative image SynopsisCBG is derived from agri-waste and other forms of organic waste — a hi-tech version of gobar gas. Unlike the latter, though, a CBG plant produces sulphur stripped of methane of automotive-grade, producing high-quality solid and liquid organic fertilisers as byproducts. Petroleum and natural gas minister Dharmendra Pradhan…
