Abstract

A novel process involving the coupling of the dehydrogenation of cyclohexanol and the hydrogenation of furfural has been studied for the synthesis of cyclohexanone and 2-methylfuran over the same Cu–Zn–Al catalyst, realizing good energy efficiency, optimal hydrogen ultilization, and environmentally benign process.
