A paper titled "Synthesis of high density fuel with cyclopentanol derived from lignocellulose" delivered by Ph.D. candidate Xueru Sheng was published in Scientific Reports in 2015. Recently, this paper was selected as one of the top 100 cited Scientific Reports articles in 2015 (among almost 11,000 papers).
Scientific Reports was a journal published by NPG (Nature publishing group). The IF was 5.578 in 2015.
In this work, a mixture of bi(cyclopentane) and tri(cyclopentane) with high densities (0.86 g/mL and 0.91 g/mL) was first prepared at high overall carbon yield (95.6%) by the Guerbet reaction of cyclopentanol, followed by the hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) over the SiO2 loaded Ni catalysts under solvent free conditions. This paper developed a new route for the synthesis of jet fuel range cyclic hydrocarbons with lignocellulosic platform chemicals.
