Benzaldehyde lyase (BAL) results in an efficient biocatalyst for theumpolung carboligation of furfural, HMF, and mixtures of them,leading to blended C10–C12 platform chemicals. Subsequently, themixing and gentle heating (<100 °C) of the formed hydroxy-ketonewith choline chloride leads to the formation of a novel biomassderiveddeep-eutectic-solvent.
