Mesoporous silica nanoparticles functionalized with both sulfonic acid (HSO(3)) and ionic liquid (ILs) were synthesized and applied as effective and recyclable catalysts for generating 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) from fructose. For the first time a high HMF yield of 72.5% was achieved

Acidity modified silver exchanged silicotungstic acid (AgSTA) catalyst was prepared and characterized by X-ray diffraction, FT-IR spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, FT-IR pyridine adsorption, SEM imaging, EDX mapping, and antimicrobial activity was also tested. The catalytic activity was evaluated for the dehydration

5-Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is a valuable biomass-derived building block. Among possible HMF valorization products, a broad range of HMF esters can be synthesized. These HMF esters have found some promising applications, such as monomers, fuels, additives, surfactants, and fungicides, and thus

The synthesis of 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (HMF) in ionic liquids is a field that has grown rapidly in recent years. Unique dissolving properties for crude biomass in combination with a high selectivity for HMF formation from hexose sugars make ionic liquids attractive
