Keep ′em separated: Bioalcohols are alternatives to petroleum-based chemicals. Particularly biobutanol is an interesting compound, with properties superior to bioethanol. It is difficult, however, to separate biobutanol from the mixtures produced by the fermentation of biomass. This Communication describes a zeolitic imidazolate framework suitable for the separation of biobutanol from fermentation broths by adsorption.
