Temperature-controlled phase-transfer catalysis for ethylene glycol production from cellulose

Author affiliations

Abstract

A temperature-controlled phase-transfer catalyst—tungsten acid, which in combination with a robust heterogeneous catalyst Ru/C shows a high activity and exceptional reusability for the one-pot conversion of cellulose to ethylene glycol. This binary system can be reused more than 20 times with ethylene glycol yield over 50%.
