Conversion of biomass to gamma-valerolactone by catalytic transfer hydrogenation of ethyl levulinate over metal hydroxides
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2014-04-05)
A series of low-cost readily-assembled eco-friendly metal hydroxides were examined as catalysts in the synthesis of a novel platform molecule, gamma-valerolactone (GVL), from biomass-derived ethyl levulinate (EL) via ...
Chemoselective Hydrogenation of Biomass-Derived 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural into the Liquid Biofuel 2,5-Dimethylfuran
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2014-06-18)
In recent years, 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF), which is produced by the selective hydrogenation of biomass-derived 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and is considered as a new-fashioned liquid biofuel for transportation, has received ...
Production of γ-valerolactone from lignocellulosic biomass for sustainable fuels and chemicals supply
(Elsevier Ltd, 2014)
Recently, valorization of lignocellulosic biomass, the most abundantly available biomass raw material on the Earth, to biofuels and chemicals has attracted great attention worldwide for the purpose of reducing our overwhelming ...
Selective Transformation of 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural into the Liquid Fuel 2,5-Dimethylfuran over Carbon-Supported Ruthenium
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2014-02-26)
A simple and efficient process was presented for the selective hydrogenation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) into the high-quality liquid fuel 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF) in the presence of tetrahydrofuran (THF). Among the ...
Zeolite-promoted transformation of glucose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural in ionic liquid
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE SA, 2014-05-15)
A variety of zeolite catalysts were investigated for the conversion of glucose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) in ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ([BMIM]Cl), and the results revealed that Hp-zeolite ...
