Abstract

Cellulose can be transformed into methyl glucosides in methanol with yields of 50-60% in the presence of several acid catalysts under mild conditions (< or = 473 K); H(3)PW(12)O(40) provides the highest turnover number (approximately 73 in 0.5 h) for the formation of methyl glucosides among many acid catalysts examined.
