Conversion of biomass to gamma-valerolactone by catalytic transfer hydrogenation of ethyl levulinate over metal hydroxides
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2014-04-05)
A series of low-cost readily-assembled eco-friendly metal hydroxides were examined as catalysts in the synthesis of a novel platform molecule, gamma-valerolactone (GVL), from biomass-derived ethyl levulinate (EL) via ...
Chemoselective Hydrogenation of Biomass-Derived 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural into the Liquid Biofuel 2,5-Dimethylfuran
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2014-06-18)
In recent years, 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF), which is produced by the selective hydrogenation of biomass-derived 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and is considered as a new-fashioned liquid biofuel for transportation, has received ...
Catalytic conversion of glucose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural using double catalysts in ionic liquid
(J TAIWAN INST CHEM E, 2012-09)
An efficient process for the conversion of glucose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) using chromium (III) chloride (CrCl3 center dot 6H(2)O) and boric acid (B(OH)(3)) as double catalysts in ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methyl ...
Efficient Production of Furan Derivatives from a Sugar Mixture by Catalytic Process
(ENERG FUEL, 2012-07)
We present here the results of an investigation aimed at identifying catalysts for the dehydration of glucose and xylose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (I-IMF) and furfural in a diphasic reaction system, and the subsequent ...
Catalytic conversion of carbohydrates into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural over cellulose-derived carbonaceous catalyst in ionic liquid
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2013)
Three environmental-benign and low-cost carbon-based solid acid catalysts containing -SO3H, -COOH and phenolic -OH groups were prepared and used for the conversion of glucose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) in ionic ...
Effects of Zr/Ti molar ratio in SO42-/ZrO2-TiO2 calcined at different temperatures on its surface properties and glucose reactivity in near-critical methanol
(J NAT GAS CHEM, 2012-03)
Effects of Zr/Ti molar ratio in SO42-/ZrO2-TiO2 solid acid catalyst calcined at different temperatures on its surface properties and catalytic activity were thoroughly investigated in this paper. The physicochemical ...
