Producing Methylcyclopentadiene Dimer and Trimer based High-Performance Jet Fuels using 5-Methyl Furfural

Abstract

Methylcyclopentadiene dimer and trimer based fuels are synthesized from 5-methyl furfural for the first time with yield as high as 74.4%. They exhibit both high density and high thermal stability that are better than widely used fossil based jet fuels like JP-10 and JP-7, and represent types of high-performance fuels. This work also provides a potential and scale-up feasible route for synthesizing high-performance jet fuels from biomass.
