2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2020
2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid or FDCA is a well known organic chemical compound made up of two carboxylic acid groups that are attached to a central furan ring. It was first reported as dehydromucic acid by Rudolph Fittig and Heinzelmann in the year 1876. They were also known for producing this chemical compound via the action of concentrated hydrobromic acid upon mucic acid. The US Department of Energy has observed it as one of the 12 priority chemicals for establishing a green chemistry industry in the future.
The process to synthesise 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid may be divided into four groups as:
- Dehydration of hexose derivatives.
- Oxidation of 2,5-disubstituted furans.
- Catalytic conversions of various furan derivatives.
- Biological conversion of HMF.
2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid is a stable compound. Its physical properties, like insolubility in most of the common solvents and a very high melting point, seem to indicate intermolecular hydrogen bonding. Despite its chemical stability, it undergoes reactions typical for carboxylic acids, like halogen substitution to give carboxylic dihalides. The versatility of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid can also be seen by the number of its derivatives available via relatively simple chemical transformations.
