Keeping it low to rise high: The selective dehydration of fructose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural is studied under single-phase conditions in the low boiling solvent dioxane at moderate temperatures in the presence of the solid-acid catalyst Amberlyst-15 and small amounts of DMSO. Under continuous flow conditions, a significantly improved space–time yield has been obtained compared to the batch case.
