Abstract: The effects of pretreatment technology on the liquefaction of furfural residue in ethylene glycol were investigated.The experimental data showed that the liquefaction rate of furfural residues,which was pretreated via using the intermixture of 5% NaOH and 2.5% H2O2 at the ratio of 1:1(mL:mL), could reach 82.0%,under the conditions of 150 ℃ for 90 min with the solid-liquid ratio of 1:10(g:g) and catalyst dosage of 3%, respectively.Meanwhile, the furfural residues before and after the pretreatment as well as the liquefaction products were analyzed and characterized by scanning electron microscopy(SEM), infrared spectra (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction spectrum (XRD),13C NMR,and 1H NMR,respectively.The results showed that the composition and surface structure of furfural residues were changed in pretreatment process.It was beneficial to improve the liquefaction process of furfural residue.And the liquefaction products included alcohols,esters,ethers and so on.

Key words: furfural residu, ethylene glycol, pretreatment, catalytic liquefaction
