Abstract

One-pot two-step synthesis of DFF was achieved by catalytic conversion of glucose over CrCl3·6H2O/NaBr//NaVO3·2H2O catalysts, and a DFF yield of 55% based on glucose was obtained. This glucose conversion process is characterized by the abundance and low cost of starting material and no need for HMF separation or purification.

Graphical Abstract

An alternative one-pot one-step approach for the catalytic conversion of glucose into DFF with a yield of 18% in the CrCl3·6H2O/NaBr//NaVO3·2H2O system has been reported for the first time. Two-step process can give higher DFF yield than one-step, and the best DFF yield of 55% can be obtained under mild reaction conditions.
