An integrated process for the production of 2,5-dimethylfuran from fructose

Author affiliations

Abstract

2,5-Dimethylfuran was successfully produced in 92% overall yield from fructose in 1-butanol through a combination of dehydration over Amberlyst-15 and hydrogenolysis over the Ru–Sn/ZnO catalyst. The environmental favorability of this process, and its unprecedented efficiency, makes it promising from both a green chemistry and an industrial perspective.
