Ionic Liquid Binary Mixtures, Zeolites, and Ultrasound Irradiation: A Combination to Promote Carbohydrate Conversion into 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural

We studied the dehydration of fructose, glucose, and sucrose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, catalyzed by HY zeolite, in three ionic liquid mixtures differing for the cation, aromatic, or aliphatic
