Abstract: 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and furfural (FF), two bio-based platform chemicals, were produced from various raw lignocellulosic materials (corncob, corn stover, wheat straw, rice straw and sugarcane bagasse) in a water-tetrahydrofuran media by using NaHSO4 as catalyst. The in fluences of reaction temperature (160-200 oC), reaction time (30-120 min), solvent volume ratio, feedstock concentration (2.4wt%-11.1wt%) and catalyst dosage were studied. The highest HMF and FF yields obtained from corncob were 47mol% and 56mol% under condition of 190 oC, 90 min, 10/1 of THF/H2O. Besides, the lignin in the raw biomass wasalso depolymerized into organosolv lignin.
