Burning down the sugars: We report the synthesis and characterization of new acid catalysts prepared from pyrolysis and sulfonation of sugar beet molasses, an inexpensive and viscous byproduct of the processing of sugar beets into sugar. Pyrolysis conditions for the preparation of molasses carbons are important factors determining the performance of the catalysts.
