Abstract

The two-level rotating foam reactor has been developed for conducting of separate reactions in different phases in one reactor. The provided approach has been tested in the dehydration of xylose combined with produced furfural hydrogenation. The dehydration of xylose to furfural was carried out over zeolite MOR coated over Al foam in the aqueous phase and the hydrogenation of furfural over Ru impregnated over carbon foam in the organic phase. 2-Methyltetrahydrofuran and cyclohexane were used as solvents in the process. The main product of the combined process is tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol.
