Enhanced Basicity of MnOx‐Supported Ru for the Selective Oxidation of 5‐Hydroxymethylfurfural to 2,5‐Furandicarboxylic Acid

Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt

No base needed: A stable, basic MnOx-supported Ru catalyst realizes highly efficient and selective oxidation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural to 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) in a green solvent (water) in the absence of external base, achieving an excellent yield of FDCA (87 %) with a turnover number of 88 (turnover frequency: 22 h−1), exhibiting higher catalytic efficiency than previously reported Ru-based catalytic systems.


The present study focused on developing a stable basic MnOx support for Ru (RuMn) for the efficient oxidation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) to 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) in water in the absence of an external base. A series of MnOx supports, synthesized via hydrothermal approach using urea as precipitant, was prepared by thermal treatment at various temperatures (300–800 °C) before doping with Ru. The RuMn-2 (1 wt % Ru, MnOx calcined at 400 °C) possessed a large number of basic sites (1.72 mmol g−1) based on CO2 temperature-programmed desorption analysis, affording an FDCA yield of 87 % with a turnover frequency of 22 h−1. Transmission electron microscopy energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy elemental mapping of RuMn-2 showed a high dispersion of Ru over the surface of MnOx, contributing to the efficient HMF oxidation. Moreover, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and H2 temperature-programmed reduction indicated that the predominant MnO2 phase (ϵ-MnO2) played a vital role in HMF oxidation. RuMn-2 was recyclable for up to four runs without significant loss in the activity and retained its structural integrity.
