Efficient catalytic conversion of concentrated cellulose feeds to hexitols with heteropoly acids and Ru on carbon

Author affiliations

Abstract

A combination of heteropolyacids and Ru on carbon catalyzes the conversion of concentrated cellulose feeds into hexitols under H2 pressure. Quantitative conversion of ball-milled cellulose was observed with remarkable hexitol volume productivity.
