Abstract

A simple, green, cost- and energy-efficient route for converting phenolic components in bio-oil to hydrocarbons and methanol has been developed, with nearly 100% yields. In the heterogeneous catalysts, RANEY® Ni acts as the hydrogenation catalyst and Nafion/SiO2 acts as the Brønsted solid acid for hydrolysis and dehydration.
