Levulinic Acid from Furfuryl Alcohol in THF Solvent Systems

Furfuryl alcohol was hydrolysed to levulinic acid with  yields >70%.   (ACS Catalysis)[/caption] American and Brazilian Researchers observed a reduction of the  furfuryl alcohol polymerization reactions, when using a zeolite to hydrolyse furfuryl alcohol in THF (a furfural by-product) , thus increasing the yields over 70%. Two extracts from their report explain the importance of their…

Closing In on Butanol for Biofuel

Butanol is the go-to industrial solvent for products such as lacquers and enamels, but it might also play a substantial role in the production of renewable fuels. Gallon for gallon, it has 30 percent more energy than ethanol and only around 4 percent less energy than a gallon of petroleum-based gasoline. DalinYebo‘s insight: Great alternative…
