All for one and furfural: Unique dissolving properties for crude biomass and high selectivity for 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (HMF) formation from hexose sugars make ionic liquids attractive reaction media for the production of chemicals from renewable resources. This Minireview surveys important progress made in catalyst development for the synthesis of HMF in ionic liquids and proposes future research directions in process technology.
