- ... Tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (THFAL), as a green industrial solvent, can be obtained directly from biomass-derived furfural with 100% conversion and 100% yield over a hydroxyapatite-supported Pd catalyst (Pd-HAP) under relatively mild conditions (40 °C, 1 MPa H₂, and 3 h) in 2-propanol. At room temperature and reacting for 8 h, the yield of THFAL was more than 99%. By capturing the intermediates, tw ...
