Mark Crocker, CAER Associate Director of the Biofuels and Environmental Catalysis group, recently had a book published titled, "Thermochemical Conversion of Biomass to Liquid Fuels and Chemicals." In addition to editing the publication, he also co-authored a chapter with CAER Director Rodney Andrews. Other chapters were written by CAER's Jim Neathery; Gary Jacobs and Burt Davis, and Sam Morton (along with Laurel Morton EKU's Dept. of Chemistry). Czarena Crocfcheck and Mike Montross of UK's Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering.

Of the book, Amazon.com says, "This book provides an up-to-date overview of the thermochemical methods available for biomass conversion to liquid fuels and chemicals. In addition to traditional conversion technologies such as fast pyrolysis, new developments are considered, including catalytic routes for the production of liquid fuels from carbohydrates and the use of ionic liquids for lignocellulose utilization. The individual chapters, written by experts in the field, provide an introduction to each topic, as well as describing recent research developments."
