Abstract

Dimethoxymethane/methanol was creatively used as matching-solvents for one-pot synergistic converting bamboo into value-added chemicals. C6 and C5 sugars in cellulose and hemicellulose were simultaneously transformed into methyl levulinate with higher yield (48.68%). The overall reaction pathways for directional liquefaction of biomass into methyl levulinate with matching-solvent was put forward.
