Abstract

Selectivity control in biomass conversion is often realized by manipulating the solvent environment. Outcomes can be rationalized through a thermodynamically rigorous application of transition-state theory. We show that solvent-induced perturbations to selectivity in both monophasic and biphasic reactor systems are governed by the same underlying principles.
