Superdry: Based on theoretical simulation, superhydrophobic mesoporous acid (P-SO3H-154) was rationally designed and successfully synthesized. The superhydrophobic acid could completely prevent HMF hydration, generating a sole HMF product from full conversion of fructose. Interestingly, the combined catalysts of superhydrophobic solid acid and superhydrophilic solid base are very efficient for one-pot conversion of glucose to HMF, resulting in a yield as high as 95.4 %.
