Abstract

Investigations were carried out in the production of furan from furfural over chromite catalysts. The temperature, furfural/water molar ratio, and space velocity were the experimental parameters. From the investigated catalysts, the promoted version of the zinc-iron-chromite catalyst appeared to be the most advantageous and a furan yield of more than 90% was obtained with it. However, an endurance test showed that the metal oxide catalysts lose their activities and hence they are unsuitable for industrial use.
