Cat-Al-ytically coated: The preparation of a solid acid foam based on zirconium phosphate (ZrPO) coating on aluminum foam is described. The catalytic properties are evaluated in the dehydration of glucose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural in a biphasic rotating foam reactor (see picture). The silylation procedure leads to a higher selectivity, and a more intensive contact of the foam with aqueous and organic phases leads to an increase of selectivity and stability.
