Abstract

A MIL-101-based porous coordination polymer (PCP) containing sulfonic acid groups is synthesized. The sulfonic groups are exposed on the pore surface and act as strong Brønsted acid sites. This solid acid PCP catalytically hydrolyzes cellulose into mono- and disaccharides and shows high durability in the catalytic reaction.
