Selective Dehydration of Glucose into 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural by Ionic Liquid-ZrOCl2 in Isopropanol

In this work, a heterogeneous catalytic system consisting of [HO2CMMIm]Cl and ZrOCl2 in isopropanol is demonstrated to be effective for 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) synthesis with glucose as the feedstock. Various reaction conditions for HMF synthesis by glucose dehydration were investigated system...
