Abstract

A novel acidic ionic liquid, 1-methylimidazolium chlorosulfate ([HMIm]SO3Cl), with dual Bransted-Lewis acidity was synthesized. This compound provided better catalytic performance in esterification and dehydration of fructose to 5-hydroxy-methylfurfural (HMF) than acidic ionic liquids with only Brønsted or Lewis acidity.
