Synthesis of renewable diesel range alkanes by hydrodeoxygenation of furans over Ni/Hβ under mild conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Diesel range branched alkanes were synthesized by the solvent-free hydrodeoxygenation of 5,5′-(butane-1,1-diyl)bis(2-methylfuran), the hydroxyalkylation/alkylation product of 2-methylfuran and butanal. Over the non-noble metal catalyst Ni/Hβ-(394), ∼90% carbon yield of diesel range alkanes was achieved at a much lower temperature (503 K) than the temperature (623 K) used in the literature over noble metal catalysts.
