The aerobic oxidation and oxidative esterification of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) catalyzed by gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) supported on a semicrystalline nanoporous multiblock copolymer matrix consisting of syndiotactic poly(styrene)-cis-1,4-poly(butadiene) (sPSB) have been investigated. Depending on the reaction parameters (support nanoporosity, presence of water, solvent, temperature, cocatalyst, oxygen pressure), the conversion of HMF can be finely addressed to the formation of the desired oxidation product, such as 2,5-diformylfuran (DFF), 5-formylfuran-2-carboxylic acid (FFCA), methyl 5-(hydroxymethyl)furan-2-carboxylate (MHMFC), dimethyl furan-2,5-dicarboxylate (DMFC), and furan-2,5-dicarboxylic acid (FDCA), under optimized reaction conditions. The AuNP–sPSB catalyst is highly effective and selective because the polymer support acts as a conveyor and concentrator of the reactants toward the catalytic sites.

Abstract

The aerobic oxidation and oxidative esterification of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) catalyzed by gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) supported on a semicrystalline nanoporous multiblock copolymer matrix consisting of syndiotactic poly(styrene)-cis-1,4-poly(butadiene) (sPSB) have been investigated. Depending on the reaction parameters (support nanoporosity, presence of water, solvent, temperature, cocatalyst, oxygen pressure), the conversion of HMF can be finely addressed to the formation of the desired oxidation product, such as 2,5-diformylfuran (DFF), 5-formylfuran-2-carboxylic acid (FFCA), methyl 5-(hydroxymethyl)furan-2-carboxylate (MHMFC), dimethyl furan-2,5-dicarboxylate (DMFC), and furan-2,5-dicarboxylic acid (FDCA), under optimized reaction conditions. The AuNP–sPSB catalyst is highly effective and selective because the polymer support acts as a conveyor and concentrator of the reactants toward the catalytic sites.
