Title: Tandem Lewis/Brønsted homogeneous acid catalysis: conversion of glucose to 5-hydoxymethylfurfural in an aqueous chromium( iii ) chloride and hydrochloric acid solution

Abstract

Optimizing the concentrations of Lewis and Brønsted acids maximizes the 5-hydroxymethylfurfural yield from glucose in a single pot.
