Valuable sugars: Nafion-resin-functionalized mesocellular silica foam (MCF) is a strong solid acid that can be prepared through an impregnation method. By using this method, Nafion is well-dispersed in the ultra-large cells of MCFs. This material can easily be reused and exhibits high efficiency and selectivity for the acid-catalyzed dehydration of D-fructose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural under mild conditions.
