I have a solution containing glucose and some sulfuric acid. I want to distill out the sulfuric acid to then reuse it for other purposes. The problem is the presence of glucose in the solution. I'm afraid that, when increasing the temperature, the sulfuric acid will dehydrate glucose to carbon and other compounds - something that I don't want to happen. Would distillation cause such a reaction?
And in case it would - are there any other methods to extract the sulfuric acid?
