Sweet biomass: Niobium oxide is supported on MCM-41 silica to deliver catalysts that are active for the dehydration of xylose to furfural. The furfural yield is improved when NaCl is added to the reaction mixture. The catalysts can be recycled without an intermediate regeneration step and no significant leaching of niobium oxide is observed.
