Title: Yield of 1,6-anhydro-3,4-dideoxy-β-D-glycero-hex-3-enopyranos-2-ulose (levoglucosenone) on the acid-catalyzed pyrolysis of cellulose and 1,6-anhydro-β-D-glucopyranose (levoglucosan)

Author: Broido, Abraham; Evett, Malcolm; Hodges, Craig C.;

Date: 1975

Source: Carbohydrate Research. 44(2): 267-274

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Although 1,6-anhydro-3,4-dideoxy-β-D-glycero-hex-3-enopyranos-2-ulose (2) is produced by the acid-catalyzed pyrolysis of both cellulose and 1,6-anhydro-β-D-glucopyranose (1), data presented here show that the principal mechanism of its formation in the pyrolysis of cellulose is not via 1. Furthermore, the data provide evidence that 1 itself is not a primary product of cellulose pyrolysis, so that the principal mechanism of its formation must involve a precursor as yet unidentified.

Keywords: pyrolysis, cellulose, levoglucosan
