Conformal sulfated zirconia monolayer catalysts for the one-pot synthesis of ethyl levulinate from glucose


Here we describe a simple route to creating conformal sulphated zirconia monolayers throughout an SBA-15 architecture that confers efficient acid-catalysed one-pot conversion of glucose to ethyl levulinate.
