W ai Ni: A nickel–tungsten carbide on active carbon (Ni-W2C/AC) catalyst converts the biomass platform molecule 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (HMF) into the liquid fuel molecule 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF) via the intermediate 5-methylfurfural. Synergy between the Ni and W2C components combines their hydrogenating and deoxygenating abilities and allows to achieve high yields of DMF.
