Abstract
In this study, FeCl3 was proven to be an efficient catalyst for glucan hydrolysis to produce levulinic acid (LA) with corn stalk as substrate. The use of a well evaluated and detailed model to study the kinetics, and the use of corn stalk instead of cellulose as raw material to produce LA, make our work original. Through the experiment, a maximum LA concentration of 16.14 g/L was obtained under 180 °C with 0.5 mol/L FeCl3 and that equates to an...
