Title: Solvent system for effective near-term production of hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) with potential for long-term process improvement

Abstract

A process that upgrades biomass-derived sugars to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), a value-added platform molecule, is presented. The proposed process is ideally suited for integration with the current HFCS process and has the potential for long-term process improvement.
