- We report a one-step process for the production of diesel fuel
from biomass-derived 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF). The reaction
proceeds through the sequential transfer hydrogenation
and etherification of HMF to 2,5-bis(alkoxymethyl)furan, a potential
biodiesel additive, catalyzed by a Lewis acid zeolite,
such as Sn-Beta or Zr-Beta. An alcohol is used as a hydrogen
donor and as a reactant in etherification. This cascade reaction
can selectively produce high yields of the biodiesel additive
(>80% yield) from HMF with the Sn-Beta catalyst and secondary
alcohols, such as 2-propanol and 2-butanol.
