Abstract:Biomass is drawing more and more attention as a sustainable and environmental-friendly energy resource. As fructose being one of the main components of agricultural waste, various catalysts have been developed to convert fructose into useful chemicals. While most of these catalysts are particles, the kinetic process and mass transfer are still unknown. Therefore, we would like to fabricate a microreactor with an immobilized catalyst for fructose conversion to study the kinetics of the process. Dip coating and wash coating were tried to coat a porous catalyst film on the Si substrate. Porous catalyst patterns were fabricated by dip coating using wettability contrast. Ellipsometry and SEM were used to characterize the surface properties of these thin films.
