Abstract

Figure Presented] Cat waiting in the wings: The transient formation of Cr2+ dimers through coordination to a second molecule of the catalyst promotes the isomerization of glucose to fructose and explains the unique ability of CrCl2 to catalyze the dehydration of glucose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) in ionic-liquid media. The active-site environment during the rate-controlling step resembles that in hexose isomerase enzymes.© 2010 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
