Recent Catalytic Advances in the Chemistry of Substituted Furans from Carbohydrates and in the Ensuing Polymers

  • Claude Moreau
  • Mohamed Naceur Belgacem
  • Alessandro Gandini

Abstract

In this review, an overview is given on the last development of catalytic methods for the preparation of substituted furans from carbohydrates and ensuing polymers. The review starts with the recent aspects in the synthesis of some key furan monomers in the presence of solid catalysts. In the second part, selected examples are given of polymerization systems leading to furan-based materials with promising properties, thus constituting a serious alternative to petroleum-based counterparts. Finally, a short examination is given on what could be the future of furan chemistry with the recent development of ionic liquids as solvents.
