Bio/Research

Dr. Schlaf’s research is focused on developing new catalysts and processes for the hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) of biomass-derived sugars and sugar derivatives to sustainable chemicals.

His research group addresses questions of fundamental reaction chemistry, catalyst design and synthesis, and practical chemical engineering.

Schlaf and his team aim to develop new synthetic methodologies for the selective transformation of hydroxyl functions in naturally abundant polyalcohols and monosaccharides using heterogeneous and rationally designed homogeneous transition metal catalysts.
