Link with SuBiCat:

Currently, Peter is working as EC fellow together with Dr. Katalin Barta and Prof. Johannes G. de Vries on novel catalytic methodologies for the depolymerization of lignin to obtain aromatic monomeric products of interest. They mainly focus on the application of homogeneous catalyst systems. This is because as they are of the opinion soluble catalyst are more effective in penetrating the robust lignin structure and reaching the catalytic cleavage sites. The target cleavage site in this case are the most common β-O-4 linkages.
