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.
