Abstract: The epoxidation of 2,5-dimethyl furan leads to the production of hex-3-ene-2,5-dione via a ring opening rearrangement reaction. A second epoxidation reaction could then enable a further ring closing rearrangement to form 4-hydroxy-2,5-dimethyl-3-furanone (furaneol). In this paper we report the use of gold and gold palladium supported on graphite and titania as catalysts for the ring opening reaction of 2,5-dimethyl furan. We show that by tuning the reaction conditions high selectivity towards hex-3-ene-2,5-dione can be achieved using green chemical methods and mild reaction conditions.
