Furfuryl alcohol to ethyl levulinate

Conversion of furfuryl alcohol to ethyl levulinate using porous aluminosilicate acid…

DalinYebo‘s insight:

A smart pathway to get to ethyl levulinate (EL), another (next generation – drop-in) biofuel.

EL has an oxygen content of 33%. For example: a blend of 20% EL, 70% petroleum diesel and 1% co-additive has a 6.9% oxygen content, resulting in a significantly cleaner burning diesel fuel (http://j.mp/I9Sv4c).
