The development of new synthetic routes from biomass sources towards already existing molecules, which are then called bio-based molecules, or the transformation of biomass into new building blocks and materials will be of great impact. The review presents a critical comparison between metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) and other catalysts (e.g. zeolites) for biomass transformation and valorization to platform chemicals: cellulose hydrolysis to glucose, fructose or sorbitol; fructose, glucose or… CONTINUE READING
