Platform Chemicals via Zeolite-Catalyzed Fast Pyrolysis

Furan derivatives, such as 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and furfural, obtained from renewable feedstocks are sustainable alternatives to petroleum-based building blocks for the manufacture of chemical products. This study shows for the first time the applicability of the catalytic fast pyrolysis (CFP) of glucose…
