Not just sugar! Lewis-acidic Sn-MWW zeolites are obtained through postsynthesis functionalization of deboronated B-MWW with Sn. These materials are highly active, selective, and recyclable catalysts for the conversion of triose sugars to methyl lactate (in methanol) and lactic acid (in water). They also demonstrate good performance in the conversion of hexose sugars and sucrose to methyl lactate.
