What a natural harmony! From birth to death, each species has its own life cycle and innate mechanisms decoded and to be decoded by scientists. The destiny of life cycle can be revealed by genome within a cell as the core of living beings. The more scientific discoveries about the core, the higher possibilities to disclose the truth of life. For sustainable development of our planet, it is important to build up one co-existing ecosystem for all living things.|

Selective hydrodeoxygenation of biomass-derived aromatic alcohols to value-added chemical or fuel is of great importance for sustainable biomass upgrading, and hydrodeoxygenation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) to 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF) is one of the most attractive reactions. Achieving the conversion of HMF to DMF using H2 at ambient temperature is challenging. In this work, we used PdCu nanoalloys to catalyze the selective hydrodeoxygenation reaction of HMF to DMF using H2 as the reducing agent.
