Set phases to stun! A three-phase catalytic system, consisting of an aqueous phase, a hydrophobic ionic-liquid phase, and a solid-acid catalyst phase of nanostructured vanadium phosphate and mesostructured cellular foam is developed for efficient conversion of biomass-derived fructose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural. This unique three-phase catalytic system opens up an alternative avenue for making solid-acid catalyst systems with controlled microenvironment.
