One step catalytic conversion of cellulose to sustainable chemicals utilizing cooperative ionic liquid pairs

Author affiliations

Abstract

A 100% conversion of cellulose to industrially useful chemicals is, for the first time, achieved in a single pot reaction by the use of cooperative ionic liquid pairs for combined dissolution and catalytic degradation of cellulose, which overcomes the long intrinsic phase problem in the conversion of biomass to chemicals.
