Breathing life into new conversions: An efficient conversion of biomass-derived carbohydrates into formic acid (FA) can be achieved when catalyzed by H5PV2Mo10O40, which can also be used for the conversion of cellulose into FA. X-ray photoelectron spectra and reactions of possible intermediates indirectly shed light on the reaction mechanism involving electron and oxygen transfer processes.
