Conversion of furfuryl alcohol into 2-methylfuran at room temperature using Pd/TiO2 catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

The selective hydrogenation of furfuryl alcohol into 2-methylfuran was investigated at room temperature using palladium supported catalysts. We have shown that Pd–TiO2 catalysts can be very effective for the synthesis of 2-methylfuran at room temperature and low pressure of hydrogen (1–3 bar). The effect of various reaction conditions (pressure, catalyst amount, and solvent) was studied.
