Fast, convenient, 117: Nafion 117 is demonstrated to be an efficient, reusable heterogeneous catalyst for the dehydration of xylose to furfural, a sustainable intermediate for fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and furan-based polymers. The high catalytic activity of Nafion 117 promotes shorter reaction times to limit the formation of side-products, which otherwise would lead to decreased yields.
