Domino Reaction Catalyzed by Zeolites with Brønsted and Lewis Acid Sites for the Production of g-Valerolactone from Furfural Take the straight path : Furfural was converted into g-valerolactone (GVL) through sequential transfer-hydrogenation and hydrolysis reactions catalyzed by zeolites with Lewis and Brønsted acid sites (see picture). Together, Zr-Beta and Al-MFI nanosheets generated GVL in 78 % yield without the use of precious metals or molecular H2. This system offers an attractive… CONTINUE READING
