Title
Au-catalyzed oxidative condensation of renewable furfural and ethanol to produce furan-2-acrolein in the presence of molecular oxygen
Abstract

•A catalytic system is developed for the volarization of renewable furfural.•Oxidative condensation of furfural with ethanol to furan-2-acrolein is achieved.•The catalyst system is composed of Au nanoparticle and potassium carbonate.•A 94.1% furfural conversion in 75.0% selectivity of furan-2-acrolein is obtained.

A specialty chemical compound, furan-2-acrolein, can be produced from renewable feedstock via furfural. An efficient catalytic process related to oxidative condensation of furfural and ethanol using supported Au catalyst has been developed. A series of solid catalysts including Au/Al2O3, Au/CeO2, Au/Fe3O4, Au/HTc (hydrotalcite calcined) and Au/Nb2O5 are prepared and their catalytic activities in oxidative condensation of furfural with ethanol are compared. Moreover, the influence of the presence of base promoters, such as K2CO3, on Au catalyst performance is investigated. The physical properties of these catalysts are characterized by XRD, TEM, SEM, UV–vis and BET techniques. The impact of reaction variables on catalyst performance is measured. It has been found that, in the presence of Au/Al2O3 and potassium carbonate, 94.1% conversion of furfural and 75.0% selectivity to furan-2-acrolein are obtained under the conditions of 140 °C, 0.3 MPa of O2 and reaction time of 4 h.
