Efficient conversion of glucose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural catalyzed by a common Lewis acid SnCl4 in an ionic liquid
The common Lewis acid SnCl4 could efficiently convert glucose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural in 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate ([EMim]BF4). New evidence indicated that the formation ofExpand
Adhesion and proliferation of OCT-1 osteoblast-like cells on micro- and nano-scale topography structured poly(L-lactide).
The results showed that the cell adhesion could be enhanced on PLLA and PS surface with nano-scale and micro-scale roughness compared to the smooth surfaces of the PLL a and PS. Expand
Microemulsions with ionic liquid polar domains
In this work 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate ([bmim][BF4], an ionic liquid)/Triton X-100 (TX-100)/cyclohexane microemulsions have been prepared and characterized by phase behavior,Expand
Controlled synthesis of Ag/TiO2 core-shell nanowires with smooth and bristled surfaces via a one-step solution route.
A template-induced Oswald ripening mechanism is proposed to explain the formation of the Ag/TiO2 core-shell nanowires. Expand
Catalytic Transformation of Lignocellulose into Chemicals and Fuel Products in Ionic Liquids.
This review focuses on the catalytic chemical conversion of lignocellulose and its primary ingredients into value-added chemicals and fuel products using ILs as the reaction media. Expand
Selective Phenol Hydrogenation to Cyclohexanone Over a Dual Supported Pd–Lewis Acid Catalyst
It is reported that a previously unappreciated combination of two common commercial catalysts―nanoparticulate palladium (supported on carbon, alumina, or NaY zeolite) and a Lewis acid such as AlCl3―synergistically promotes this reaction. Expand
Efficient SO2 absorption by renewable choline chloride–glycerol deep eutectic solvents
The utilization of cheap and renewable materials is an important topic in green chemistry. In this work we studied the absorption of SO2 by choline chloride (ChCl)–glycerol deep eutectic solventsExpand
TX-100/water/1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate microemulsions.
It was demonstrated that the hydrodynamic diameter (Dh) of the bmimPF6-in-water microemulsions is nearly independent of the water content but increases with increasing bmIMPF6 content due to the swelling of the micelles by the ionic liquid. Expand
Highly efficient synthesis of cyclic carbonates from CO2 and epoxides over cellulose/KI.
It is found that the hydroxyl groups on the vicinal carbons of cellulose play a key role for the very high efficiency of the catalyst. Expand
