Cost-effective process for manufacturing gamma-valerolactone from Levulinic Acid
CSIR-CSMCRI has developed an improved selective process for the preparation of γ-valerolactone (Gvl) by catalytic hydrogenation of biomass-derived levulinic acid (LA). The disclosed process renders excellent yield (100%) under mild reaction conditions within a short reaction time.
