Direct catalytic conversion of biomass-derived furan and ethanol to ethylbenzene

Abstract:

Herein, we report a synthetic strategy to convert biomass-derived unsubstituted furan to aromatics at high selectivity, especially to ethylbenzene via alkylation/Diels-Alder cycloaddition using ethanol, while greatly reducing the formation of the main side product, benzofuran, over zeolite catalysts. Using synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction and first principles calculations, it is shown that the above methodology favors the formation of aromatic products due to readily alkylation of furan b...
