Catalytic effect of various metal salts as co-catalyst of sulfuric acid was examined.The reaction selectivity is a clear function of the type of metal salts.The major product was methyl glucoside in the presence of K2SO4 or Na2SO4.For Fe2(SO4)3 and Al2(SO4)3, methyl levulinate was formed in the highest yields.Alkali metal sulfates can suppress methyl glucoside isomerize to methyl fructoside. ? 2014 Elsevier B.V.
