Prof. John M. Simmie and Dr. Judith Würmel Harmonising Production, Properties and Environmental Consequences of Liquid Transport Fuels from Biomass—2,5-Dimethylfuran as a Case Study ChemSusChem 6
Fuel for the future? 2,5-Dimethylfuran has been the subject of many recent studies since its potential as a ‘green next-generation’ biofuel was highlighted in 2007. The chemistry of this compound is characterised by unusually strong ring-carbon-to-hydrogen bonds, and some of its derivatives are distinguished by extremely weak bonds. This combination makes the task of unravelling their chemistry, and the impacts on the environment and human health, both interesting and challenging.
