Abstract

In this paper we report a microfluidic platform that allows for high temperature, high pressure conversion with inline spectroscopic measurement for a fast and accurate determination of both reaction rate constant and activation energy. The dehydration of fructose to hydroxyl-methylfurfural has been performed in this immobilized microreactor with both dense zirconia and porous titania layers, as a starting point to probe the potential of abundant metal oxide catalysts.
