Ionic Liquids-Mediated Formation of 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural
- 能源院－已发表论文 
5-Hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF) is considered as a very important biomass-based platform compound that can be used to synthesize a broad range of liquid fuels and chemicals, which are mainly derived from fossil resources so far. The study of the production of 5-HMF in the presence of ionic liquids has increasingly attracted more attention. In this review, the recent achievements of ionic liquids-mediated formation of 5-HMF are systematically summarized, including applications of ionic liquids as reaction solvents and catalysts in the production of 5-HMF, influence factors and formation mechanisms in the ionic liquids-mediated formation of 5-HMF. The future research trends of ionic liquids-mediated formation of 5-HMF are suggested.
