A metal-free, high nitrogen-doped nanoporous graphitic carbon catalyst for an effective aerobic HMF-to-FDCA conversion

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a metal-free catalysis of the aerobic oxidation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) to 2,5-furandicarboxylic acids (FDCA), employing zeolitic-imidazole framework (ZIF-8) derived, nitrogen-doped nanoporous carbon (denoted as NNC) as an effective heterogeneous catalyst. The effect of high graphitic nitrogen loading in the NNC on the catalytic production of FDCA was demonstrated and discussed.
