Dr. Gang Yang, Dr. Evgeny A. Pidko and Prof. Dr. Emiel J. M. Hensen The Mechanism of Glucose Isomerization to Fructose over Sn-BEA Zeolite: A Periodic Density Functional Theory Study ChemSusChem 6
Hitting the sweet spot: Catalytic isomerization of glucose to fructose necessitates the presence of large lattice defects containing a Lewis acidic SnOH center and an adjacent extended silanol nest, as shown by a periodic density functional theory study. The multiple-point interaction between the sugar molecule and such a reactive center inside micropores of the zeolite Sn-BEA directs the chemical transformations.
