Effect of protic and aprotic polar solvents on the heterogeneous catalytic conversion of hexoses
We studied the synthesis, the characterization and the solvent effect on the catalytic performance of materials with Brønsted or Lewis acidity on the hexose conversion towards value-added molecules such as 5-(hydroxymeth ...
Conversion of carbohydrates to alpha-hydroxy-acids over Lewis acidic HF-, SN- and ZR- beta zeolite catalysts using gamma-valerolactone and water as solvent
The incorporation of Sn, Hf and Zr in the structure of Beta zeolite using a post-synthetic method gives catalysts with Lewis acidity that are effective for the conversion of C6 sugars to alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), such ...
