- ... A new catalytic system was developed for the selective conversion of biomass-derived furfural to cyclopentanone in aqueous solution. CuZnAl catalysts with different Cu/Zn molar ratios (0.5, 1, 2, and 3) and calcination temperatures (350, 500, and 700 °C) were investigated, and the CuZnAl-500–0.5 catalyst (Cu/Zn = 0.5, calcined at 500 °C) showed a remarkable catalytic performance in the reaction.
