The main attraction: A magnetic solid acid with mesoporous structure was synthesized for the hydrolysis cellulose into glucose. Glucose is generated efficiently from amorphous cellulose in the mesopores of the catalyst with a yield of 50 %. Moreover, catalyst separation can be readily achieved by magnetic force.
