Your MoMo so cat, she splits furfural: Molybdenum carbide (Mo2C) is identified as a highly selective deoxygenation catalyst for making 2-methylfuran from furfural through combination of density functional theory (DFT) calculations, surface science and flow reactor experiments. These results indicate the promising application of Mo2C in upgrading biomass-derived oxygenates including furanics and aromatics.
