2013 (English)In: Topics in catalysis, ISSN 1022-5528, E-ISSN 1572-9028, Vol. 56, no 9-10, 765-769 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
In this work, ionic liquid (IL) modified H-Beta zeolites were prepared and the physicochemical properties of the catalysts were investigated. IL modified zeolites were applied in 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) etherification to tert-butoxymethylfurfural (tBMF) which is a potential (bio)diesel component. The best catalyst, IL-H-Beta-25, yielded at BMF selectivity of 76 % corresponding to a HMF conversion of 46 %.
