- ... Glucose valorization to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF) remains a challenging conversion that is highly relevant in the transition toward a sustainable chemical industry. Lewis acidic tungstite is a viable, moderately active catalyst for glucose upgrading to 5-HMF but suffers from low surface area and weak Brønsted acidity. A facile nontemplated sol–gel process produces a mesoporous substoichiomet ...
