Title
Synthesis of diesel range alkanes with 2-methylfuran and mesityl oxide from lignocellulose
Abstract

•Solid acids were firstly used for the alkylation of 2-MF with mesityl oxide.•Nafion-212 resin exhibited the best performance among the investigated catalysts.•The high efficiency of Nafin-212 resin can be explained by its strong acidity.•Ni–Mo2C/SiO2 was used for the first time in the HDO of biomass derived oxygenates.•Higher yield of diesel range alkanes was obtained by the HDO over Ni–Mo2C/SiO2.

For the first time, the alkylation of 2-methylfuran with mesityl oxide was carried out over a series of solid acid catalysts. Among the investigated candidates, Nafion-212 resin exhibited the highest catalytic efficiency and good stability, which can be rationalized by the higher acid strength of this catalyst. The hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) of the alkylation products of 2-methylfuran with mesityl oxide was also studied. Ni–Mo2C/SiO2 and Ni–W2C/SiO2 were firstly used for the HDO of biomass derived oxygenates and demonstrated excellent catalytic performance for the conversion of the alkylation products to alkanes. Compared with Ni–W2C/SiO2, Ni–Mo2C/SiO2 exhibited higher selectivity to diesel range alkanes. Over the Ni–Mo2C/SiO2 catalyst, high carbon yield of diesel range alkanes (77%) could be achieved by the HDO of the alkylation products of 2-methylfuran and mesityl oxide at 573 K and 6.0 MPa H2. This value is evidently higher than those obtained over noble metal catalysts and Ni–WxC/AC under the same reaction conditions.
