- ... A series of inexpensive copper-based catalysts, derived from hydrotalcite precursors, were screened for selective transfer hydrogenation of biomass-based furfural (FFR) to furfuryl alcohol (FA) and 2-methyl furan (MF), with methanol as both the solvent and a hydrogen donor. The specific textural characteristics of the prepared catalysts were characterized by various techniques such as X-ray diffra ...
