MASTER THE CURRENT AFFAIRS – DAY 02

1) Recently research team at IIT Guwahati has formulated “Pincer Catalytic systems”

i) It converts biomass wastes into valuable chemicals
ii) It can convert bioethanol,a low energy density fuel into high energy density butanol

Which of the above statements are true?

a) i only

b) ii only

c) Both i and ii

d) Neither i nor ii

SOLUTION c)Both i and ii

Tiny amounts of these “pincer catalysts” repeatedly convert large amounts of industrial waste such as glycerol into lactic acid and hydrogen.

Such catalysts also efficiently convert bioethanol, a low-energy density fuel, into high-energy density butanol.

The conversion of valuable intermediates such as glycerol and ethanol, produced during the processing of biomass, into industrially useful chemicals has elicited much interest worldwide.

2)  With respect to “Atal innovation mission – Sirius Innovation Programme 3.0”.

i)  It is the first Indo-US bilateral youth innovation initiative which seeks to develop technological solutions for the two countries

ii)  Students will create 8 virtual products and mobile applications addressing global challenges in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic

Which of the above statements are true?

a) i only

b) ii only

c) Both i and ii

d) Neither i nor ii

SOLUTION b) ii only

It is the first Indo-Russia bilateral youth innovation initiative which seeks to develop technological solutions for the two countries
Students will create 8 virtual products and mobile applications addressing global challenges in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic
