Heterogeneous mesoporous manganese/cobalt oxide catalysts for selective oxidation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural to 2,5-diformylfuran

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a heterogeneous catalytic protocol for the oxidation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) to 2,5-diformylfuran (DFF) using a mesoporous manganese doped cobalt oxide material. The absence of precious metals and additives, use of air as the sole oxidant, and easy isolation of products, along with proper catalyst reusability, make our catalytic protocol attractive for the selective oxidation of HMF to DFF.
