Title
Synthesis of maleic acid from renewable resources: Catalytic oxidation of furfural in liquid media with dioxygen
Abstract

Developing novel technologies to obtain fuel and organic chemicals from renewable resources has been the immediate issue in academic and industrial communities. The present work introduces a new route to synthesize maleic acid from the renewable furfural. The current data reveal that, using dioxygen as oxidant, the simple copper salts can catalyze oxidation of furfural to maleic acid in aqueous solution. The combination of copper nitrate with phosphomolybdic acid could achieve a 49.2% yield of maleic acid with selectivity of 51.7%. The major challenge for this route is how to avoid the polymerization of furfural to resins under oxidative conditions.
