The aim of this work is to study the catalyst prepared by glucose-starch mixture. Assessment experiments showed that solid acid behaved the highest esterification activity when glucose and corn powder were mixed at ratio of 1:1, carbonized at 400°C for 75 min and sulfonated with concentrated H(2)SO(4) (98%) at 150°C for 5 h. The catalyst was characterized… CONTINUE READING
