Abstract

Acid chloride derivatives of 5-(chloromethyl)furan-2-carboxylic acid and furan-2,5-dicarboxylic acid (FDCA) can be produced in high yield by treatment of the precursor aldehydes 5-(chloromethyl) furfural (CMF) and 2,5-diformylfuran (DFF) with tert-butyl hypochlorite, which is inexpensively prepared from commercial bleach and tert-butanol. 5-(Chloromethyl)furan-2-carbonyl chloride (CMFCC) and furan-2,5-dicarbonyl chloride (FDCC) are highly useful intermediates for the production of furoate ester biofuels and polymers of FDCA.
