Advantages

  • Highly selective biosynthetic route to 4MP for large-scale production
  • Utilizes glucose as an inexpensive carbon source
  • Branched, medium chain alcohols (e.g., 4MP) have a high energy density and improved octane rating
  • Branched, medium chain alcohols (e.g., 4MP) exhibit low water solubility, allowing for relatively easy post-production purification
