2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) is currently considered one of the most relevant bio-sourced building blocks, representing a fully sustainable competitor for terephthalic acid as well as the main component in green polymers such as poly(ethylene 2,5-furandicarboxylate) (PEF). The oxidation of biobased 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) represents the most straightforward approach to obtain FDCA, thus attracting the attention of both academia and industries, as testified by Avantium with the creation of a new plant expected to produce 5000 tons per year. Several approaches allow the oxidation of HMF to FDCA. Metal-mediated homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, metal-free catalysis, electrochemical approaches, light-mediated procedures, as well as biocatalytic processes share the target to achieve FDCA in high yield and mild conditions. This Review aims to give an up-to-date overview of the current developments in the main synthetic pathways to obtain FDCA from HMF, with a specific focus on process sustainability.

Abstract

2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) is currently considered one of the most relevant bio-sourced building blocks, representing a fully sustainable competitor for terephthalic acid as well as the main component in green polymers such as poly(ethylene 2,5-furandicarboxylate) (PEF). The oxidation of biobased 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) represents the most straightforward approach to obtain FDCA, thus attracting the attention of both academia and industries, as testified by Avantium with the creation of a new plant expected to produce 5000 tons per year. Several approaches allow the oxidation of HMF to FDCA. Metal-mediated homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, metal-free catalysis, electrochemical approaches, light-mediated procedures, as well as biocatalytic processes share the target to achieve FDCA in high yield and mild conditions. This Review aims to give an up-to-date overview of the current developments in the main synthetic pathways to obtain FDCA from HMF, with a specific focus on process sustainability.
