Abstract: This paper mainly introduces about the catalytic mechanism and application of niobium-containing catalysts in the production of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, a biomass platform compound, from biomass saccharides.Different from other solid acid catalysts, niobium-containing catalysts exhibits excellent acid property and stability in water-containing system and water-involving reactions, which is of great significance for developing more green and economical catalytic process.
