  • Publication number: 20170015642
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to processes for converting fructose-containing feedstocks to a product comprising 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (HMF) and water in the presence of water, solvent and an acid catalyst. In some embodiments, the conversion of fructose to HMF is controlled at a partial conversion endpoint characterized by a yield of HMF from fructose that does not exceed about 80 mol %. In these and other embodiments, the processes provide separation techniques for separating and recovering the product, unconverted fructose, solvent and acid catalyst to enable the effective recovery and reutilization of reaction components.

  • Patent number: 9487465
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to processes for the separation of at least one di-carboxylic acid compound and/or at least one mono-carboxylic acid compound from a mixture. The separation processes involve contacting the mixture with an ion exchange medium to cause at least one of the mono- and/or di-carboxylic acid compounds to be retained by the medium, eluting at least one of the mono-carboxylic acid compound or the di-carboxylic acid compound using an eluent to form an eluate, wherein the eluate is enriched in at least one of the mono-carboxylic acid compound or di-carboxylic acid relative to the concentration of such eluted acid in the mixture having contacted the medium and wherein the eluent comprises an organic acid. The process has particular utility in the production of di-carboxylic acid compounds from glucose.

  • Patent number: 9216937
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to water concentration reduction processes within an adipic acid process. The present invention also includes process for converting a glucose-containing feed derived from a carbohydrate source to an adipic acid product wherein the process includes the steps of: converting glucose in the feed to a reaction product including a hydrodeoxygenation substrate and a first concentration of water; reducing the concentration of water in the reaction product to produce a feedstock including the hydrodeoxygenation substrate and second concentration of water, wherein the second concentration of water is less than the first concentration of water; and converting at least a portion of the hydrodeoxygenation substrate in the feedstock to an adipic acid product. Processes are also disclosed for producing hexamethylene diamine and caprolactam from the adipic acid product.
