Right on target: Transportation fuels can be directly produced from renewable biomass resources by converting carbohydrates into alkanes with targeted molecular weights, such as C8–C15 for jet-fuel applications. Targeted alkanes can be produced from a variety of biomass-derived carbonyl compounds, such as fructose, 5-hydroxymethylfurfural, 5-methylfurfural, 2-furaldehyde, and acetone.
