Application

5-Hydroxymethyl-2-furaldehyde (HMF) can be used in the synthesis of:
  • Furan-2,5-dicarboxaldehyde (FDA) using a vanadyl phosphate-based catalyst via selective oxidation.
  • Prepolymer and antiviral precursor, 5,5′-oxy(bismethylene)-2-furaldehyde (OBMF) using solid acid catalysts via etherification reaction.
  • Diformylfurane (DFF) by aerobic oxidation using pyridine-vanadyl complexes.

Furfurals are important intermediates in the chemical industry. They are typically produced by homogeneous catalysis in aqueous solutions. However, heterogeneously catalyzed processes would be beneficial in view of the principles of green chemistry: the elimination of homogeneous mineral acids makes...
