Biomass on the platform: An integrated catalytic process to directly convert furfural to levulinate ester is developed based on Pt nanoparticles supported on a ZrNb binary phosphate solid acid. The hydrogenation of furfural and the following alcoholysis of furfuryl alcohol are performed over this catalyst in a one-pot conversion model. The conversion shows very high selectivity to levulinate derivatives (91 % in total).
