Luche reduction

Luche reduction is the selective organic reduction of ketones to alcohols with lanthanoid chlorides such as cerium(III chloride andsodium borohydride. The Luche reduction can be conducted chemoselectively toward ketone in the presence of aldehyde or toward α,β-unsaturated ketone in the presence of non-conjugated ketone.1,2,,3 An enone forms an allyl alcohol in a 1,2-addition. Competing conjugate 1,4-addition is suppressed. The solvent is an alcohol such asmethanol or ethanol. The selectivity … Continue reading

Starch as a replacement for urea-formaldehyde in medium density fibreboard

Thermoplastic starch can be used to bind wood flour to produce a fibreboards which are mouldable, recyclable and ultimately compostable.   Medium density fibreboard (MDF) is a ubiquitous product formed from wood flour and a formaldehyde-based resin. The use of … Continue reading
