Furan derivatives, such as 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), obtained from acid-catalyzed dehydration of carbohydrates, can serve as renewable chemical platforms for the production of fuels and chemical intermediates. Addition of an inorganic salt to concentrated aqueous solutions of fructose (30 wt% fructose on salt free basis) in biphasic systems containing an organic extracting phase improves HMF yields by increasing the partitioning of HMF into the extracting phase, as measured by the… CONTINUE READING
