Synthesis of diesel and jet fuel range alkanes with furfural and ketones from lignocellulose under solvent free conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Under solvent-free conditions, C9–C12 alkanes were first synthesized at high overall carbon yield (∼80%) by the solid base catalyzed aldol condensation of furfural with 2-pentanone (or a mixture of 2-pentanone and 2-heptanone) from lignocellulose, followed by direct hydrodeoxygenation over Pd loaded solid acid catalysts at 533 K.
