Synthesis of renewable diesel with 2-methylfuran and angelica lactone derived from carbohydrates

Abstract

Diesel and jet fuel range branched alkanes were first synthesized by the combination of hydroxyalkylation/alkylation (HAA) of 2-methylfuran with angelica lactone and subsequent hydrodeoxygenation. Compared with the previous ethyl levulinate route, the angelica lactone route exhibited evident advantages at higher HAA reactivity.
