|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Biomass transformation technology based on 2-furaldehyde (C5) derived from inedible biomass resources has been focused. Hydromethylation of 2-furaldehyde (C5) to 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furaldehyde (C6) with formaldehyde reagent (C1) has been achieved with acidic resin and zeolite catalyst. Esterification of succinic acid (C4) with phenol (C6) to afford diphenyl succinate (C16) is also reported with beta zeolite catalyst. Toward the design of multistep transformations in bio-refinery, further catalytic systems with oxidation, reduction, condensation etc have been investigated too. These achievements lead the futual bio-refinery more effective design.
