Chemo-catalytic synthesis of C6 sugars from plant-derived carbohydrates: A technical assessment on solid catalysis

Authors : Prasenjit Bhaumik*a and Gourisankar Roymahapatra b



Considering the wide applications of C6 sugars, several methodologies have been developed through chemo-catalysis from plant-derived biomass wastes.This review critically overviewed the existing industrial processes as well latest advancement in this area. Further, influence of catalyst properties in each developed processes, reaction kinetics, mechanism and plausible focus of the topic are technically assessed.
