Furfural formation from d-xylose: the use of different halides in dilute aqueous acidic solutions allows for exceptionally high yields.


Starting from the results achieved in a previous work on the effects of Cl(-) ions on furfural formation in aqueous acid solution [Marcotullio, G. et al., Green Chem.2010, 12, 1739], the general effect of different halides is addressed. Experimental results show the halides to influence at least two distinct steps in the reaction leading from d-xylose to… (More)
