Abstract

Chitin, the second most abundant biopolymer in the planet after cellulose, represents a renewable carbon and nitrogen source. A thrilling opportunity for the valorization of chitin is focused on the preparation of biomass-derived N-doped carbonaceous materials. In this contribution, chitin-derived N-doped carbons were successfully prepared and functionalized with palladium metal nanoparticles. The physicochemical properties of these nanocomposites were investigated following a multi-technique strategy and their catalytic activity in reductive amination reactions was explored. In particular, a biomass-derived platform molecule, namely furfural, was upgraded to valuable bi-cyclic compounds under continuous flow conditions
