Abstract

Corncob powder was liquefied in a high pressure reactor. The composition of the gas and liquid phases produced were analyzed. The yield of gas phase increased while the yields of solid and liquid phase decreased with increasing temperature. The gas phase consisted of hydrogen, CO2, CO, alkane, and olefin. The liquid phase consisted of phenols, furanmethanol, and related derived compounds. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
