New Routes and Catalysts for Narrow-Range Ethoxylates

The aim of my research is to deliver a new cost-effective approach for making sustainable Narrow Range Ethoxylates (NRE) from fatty alcohols and ethylene oxide that can be implemented in existing production plants preferably with limited capital investments. A wide range of solid bases catalysts will be explored for green ethoxylates production without the formation of dioxane.
