Title: Synthesis of biomass-derived feedstocks for the polymers and fuels industries from 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (HMF) and acetone

Abstract

We show a process for efficient conversion of biomass derived 5-(hydroxymethyl) furfural by aldol condensation with acetone to high molecular weight compounds for applications in polymer, pigment, and petroleum industries.
