Acid/Metal Balance: Bifunctional catalysts containing ruthenium and polyoxometalates as active species with a metal-organic framework as support and encapsulation matrix, respectively, are synthesized. Excellent yields in sorbitol are obtained in the conversion of cellobiose and ball-milled cellulose. The evaluation of the balance between the hydrogenation and hydrolysis functions of these bifucntional catalysts reveals that by carefully balancing the ratio of acid site density and the number of metal surface atoms a maximum conversion can be achieved.
