Dimethylfuran
DMF
DMF (a.k.a. Dimethylfuran) is a heterocyclic compound, and a renewable chemical with a great potential for application as a fuel and fuel additive. It has a high octane number, ideal boiling point, and an energy content similar to that of gasoline. Compared to ethanol, DMF has lower latent heat of vaporization, a lower oxygen content, and is less miscible with water, which favors the processes of purification and distillation. It is also used as a precursor for furan-based compounds presenting several usages as industrial solvents. Production of DMF is based on the hydrogenolysis of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), which is obtained via dehydration of C6 sugars, such as glucose and fructose, in the presence of acid catalysts.

Dimethylfuran Production Process | DMF E11A

This report provides a techno-economic analysis of Dimethylfuran (DMF) production from glucose syrup in the United States. In this process, glucose is isomerized to fructose, which is dehydrated forming hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) intermediate. Then, HMF is converted to DMF.
