Synthesis of jet fuel range cycloalkanes with diacetone alcohol from lignocellulose

Author affiliations

Abstract

Jet fuel range branched cycloalkanes were first synthesized in high carbon yield (∼76%) with diacetone alcohol which can be derived from lignocellulose. These cycloalkanes have a high density (0.83 g mL−1) and a low freezing point (216.5 K). As a potential application, they can be used as additives to conventional bio-jet fuels.
