Abstract

original image

Cool cats don′t feel pressure: Furfural is catalytically converted into octane in high yields at relatively low pressures and temperatures. In a three-step process, two bifunctional catalysts, Pt/Co2AlO4 and Pt/NbOPO4, play crucial roles in achieving C8-ols from 4-(2-furyl)-3-buten-2-one and transforming the C8-ols into octane, respectively.
