Biomass-derived 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is yellow powder with a melting point of 28-34°C, a boiling point of 114-116 °C (1 mm Hg), a density of 1.243 g/cm3 at 25°C. It is well-known that HMF can be readily prepared with high yields from hexoses in the presence of acid catalysts in various solvents, especially in ionic liquids. Both oxidation and hydrogenation of HMF offer access to useful monomers for polymers and/or precursors for biofuels. HMF can be oxidized to 2,5-diformylfuran (DFF), 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA), adipic acid, and 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furan carboxylic acid, which can be used as a new family of polymeric monomers.

        The reduction of HMF gives diols, including 2,5-bishydroxymethyl furan (BHMF), 2,5-bishydroxymethyltetrahydrofuran (BHMTF), and 1,6-hexanediol (1,6-HD), which can be served as the building blocks for biobased polyesters. Furthermore, these diols can also be converted to potential biofuel candidates. HMF also can be applied as the precursor for the production of “drop-in” liquid fuels (C9–C15 alkanes) by aqueous-phase processing. In addition, HMF can be converted into value-added chemicals used in pharmaceuticals, flavors and fragrances.
