Abstract

Two sets of four different supported catalyst materials were prepared. One set was obtained by polymerization of a bis-vinylimidazolium salt, which formed a poly(ionic liquid) coating on SiO2, TiO2, boron nitride BN, and carbon nitride C3N4. The other set was, instead, obtained by immobilizing Keggin heteropolyacid H3PW12O40 onto poly-imidazolium functionalized materials. All the catalysts, including the bare supports, were subjected to physical and chemical characterization by XRD, SEM, Specific Surface Area and pore size measurements, TGA, FTIR, and acidity-basicity measurements. The catalytic activity of the materials was tested versus the fructose dehydration in water solution at two different sugar initial concentrations (0.3 and 1 M). Tests lasted 3 h with an amount of catalyst of 2 g∙L-1. The presence of the poly-imidazolium on the surface of the supports increased the catalytic conversion of fructose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (the most abundant compound obtained) and was further improved by the contemporary presence of the heteropolyacid, at least for the highest initial fructose concentration. In the latter conditions, the highest yield of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (>40%) was also obtained.
