Biomass breakdown in one pot: The one-pot conversion of lignocellulosic and algal biomass into liquid fuel, 2,5-dimethylfuran, has been achieved by using a multicomponent catalytic system comprising [DMA]+[CH3SO3] (DMA=N,N-dimethylacetamide), Ru/C, and formic acid. A reaction route has been elucidated based on 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopic data. Another promising biofuel has also been synthesized by using [DMA]+[CH3SO3] as catalyst.
