Aldol condensation of biomass-derived platform molecules over amine-grafted hierarchical FAU-type zeolite nanosheets (Zeolean) featuring basic sites

Abstract

The superior catalytic performance of amine-grafted hierarchical basic FAU-type zeolite nanosheets for the aldol condensation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF) and acetone (Ac) has been achieved due to the synergistic effect of hierarchical structures, featuring basic active sites together with surface modification. This results in an unprecedented yield of 4-[5-(hydroxymethyl)furan-2-yl]but-3-en-2-one (HMB) close to 100%. The catalytic activity can be easily tuned by changing the degree of basicity corresponding to the nature of basic sites and surface modification.
