Hydrogenation of α-alkylfurfuryl alcohols over an Ni-ZnO catalyst
In the hydrogenation of α-alkylfurfuryl alcohols in the vapor phase over an Ni-ZnO catalyst at 200–250°, reduction of the hydroxy group occurs with formation of 2-alkylfurans; these compounds are converted, partially or completely according to the temperature, into the corresponding aliphatic ketones as a result of the hydrogenolysis of the ring at the C-O bond.
