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 ...
Catalytic conversion of biomass renewable feedstocks to platform molecules using Brønsted acid catalysts
The fractionation of sugarcane bagasse, plantain peel and brewer’s spent grains to glucose, xylose and lignin was studied using 0.50 and 0.05 wt% H2SO4 as catalyst in a mixture of 80:20 wt% γ-valerolactone:water. We ...
