Probing Electrosynthetic Reactions with Furfural on Copper Surfaces

Authors

Abstract

This work entails the integrated use of electrochemistry and operando Raman spectroscopy to probe the reduction of a biomass platform, furfural, to value-added chemicals on Cu electrodes. The results reveal key strutural differences of the Cu that dictate selectivity for furfural alcohol or 2-methylfuran.
