Boosting scientific and technological capacity in synthetic organic chemistry
Cutting-edge research and training in synthetic organic chemistry is needed for the efficient transformation of biorenewable-based starting materials to valuable synthetic building blocks. The EU-funded Biomass4Synthons project aims to promote further training, research and innovation in the valorisation of biorenewable resources among its partners in Bulgaria and Portugal. Some examples of raw material valorisation readily available in these Widening Countries are furan-based molecules derived from carbohydrates, such as furfural and 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, oleuropein from olive leaves, abietic and dehydroabietic acid from gum rosin and lupanine alkaloid obtained from wastewater treatment of processed lupin beans. The project will boost the scientific and technological capacity of the linked academic institutions in key areas of synthetic organic chemistry.
