With a little help from Ru: Selective and tunable hydrogenation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) with earth-abundant, copper-based porous metal oxides (Cu-PMOs) is achieved. Addition of a small amount of ruthenium dopant enhances the combined selectivity to 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF) and 2,5-dimethyltetrahydrofuran (DMTHF) under optimized conditions.
