Abstract

The possibility of reducing furfural to furyl alcohol with potassium and sodium amalgams under the conditions of neutralizing the alkali formed with carbon dioxide has been investigated. The reduction of furfural can be directed to the predominant formation of furyl alcohol by regulating the rate of feed of furfural into the reaction vessel.
