Abstract The catalytic performance of acidic ionic liquids (AIL) containing HSO 4 − anion and acidic-functionalized imidazolium cations for biomass liquefaction was firstly investigated in polyethylene glycol 400-glycerol mixture at atmospheric pressure in order to explore green and efficient ways to convert woody biomass into sustainable energy and chemicals. The results showed that fir sawdust (10 g) was up to 99% liquefied using 60 g of solvent at a concentration of 1-(3-sulfopropyl)-3… CONTINUE READING
