WO/2015/172208 BIPHASIC SOLVENT CATALYTIC PROCESS FOR THE DIRECT PRODUCTION OF LIGHT NAPHTHA FROM CARBOHYDRATE-CONTAINING FEEDSTOCK.||WO||19.11.2015|

KU LEUVEN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT ||DUSSELIER, Michiel Julien |
The patent describes a one-step liquid biphasic catalytic process for converting a carbohydrate-containing feedstock, preferably lignocellulose, to light naphtha (e.g., hexane, pentane, methyl cyclopentane, cyclohexane, etc.) in presence of an acidic reactive aqueous phase and a redox catalyst in the organic extracting/reaction phase. The process provides a cost-effective route for producing light-naphtha components, in presence or not of deoxygenates. The light naphtha components are useful as feedstock for steam and catalytic cracking to produce value-added platform molecules like ethylene and propylene, as precursor for the synthesis of bioaromatics like benzene and as gasoline fuel feedstock, and as fuel additives, (e.g., the concomitantly formed oxygenates) to improve the biological origin of carbon in the fuel.
WO/2015/172207 MESODERMAL PROGENITOR CELLS||WO||19.11.2015|
||PCT/BE2015/000021||KATHOLIEKE UNIVERSITEIT LEUVEN
KU LEUVEN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT ||SAMPAOLESI Maurillo |
The present invention relates to methods for culturing and generation of mesodermal progenitor cells, more particularly methods to produce mesodermal progenitor cells, starting from pluripotent stem cells. The invention relates to methods for isolation of such cells by selecting them on the basis of the expression of marker genes such as CD44, CD140a and CD140b. The invention is also directed to the cells produced by the methods of the invention. The cells are useful, among other things, for treatment of disorders, diseases or injuries, such as conditions leading to deterioration of mesodermal derivative tissues (e.g. congenital myopathies, heart diseases and skeletal muscle diseases).
