Effect of reaction (A) temperature (t: 60 min) and (B) time (Τ: 150 °C) on HMF synthesis from hexoses (glucose 0.5 wt. % and fructose 2.1% wt. %) with formic acid catalyst, in the liquid product after isomerization (formic acid 3.5 wt. %). (Primary y axis (bars): % HMF yield and selectivity, Secondary y axis (bullets): sugars conversion)
