FDCA is an important chemical raw material from biomass that can replace petroleum-based platform compounds. It is comparable to terephthalic acid. It is an important platform compound for the development and production of bio-based materials in the future. In 2004, the US Department of Energy screened the twelve most important bio-based platform compounds from more than 300 bio-based compounds, and FDCA was one of them.

2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid is a kind of furan compound. It is rich in sources and can be obtained from fructose and galactose. Its structure is similar to terephthalic acid. It has a cyclic conjugated system and contains 2 carboxylates. 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid is a kind of furan derivative with stable properties. It can be obtained by oxidation-reduction and amidation reactions, and it can be used to obtain various furan derivatives. 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid contains the same number of carbons as glucose and can be easily transformed from it. Plant-based materials are rich in sources and renewable. Because the furan ring of 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid is a heterocyclic structure, plant-based materials are more easily degraded in nature, so it can be widely used in polyester, polyamide, metal organic framework materials, pharmaceutical synthesis, plasticizers, perfumes, etc. Because of its similar properties to benzene ring series carboxylic acids and the advantages of bio-based chemicals, it has become a hot topic in the polyester industry in recent years. It is an important organic synthesis intermediate and can be used to prepare various alkyl substitution or Esters of furan derivatives. 2,5-Dihydroxymethylfuran can be completely dehydrated to obtain 2,5-dimethyloltetrahydrofuran. The combination of these alcohols with 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid will open up new fields of application of bio-based materials.

2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid as a platform compound that can replace terephthalic acid (PTA) can be widely used in the synthesis of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) ) A furan polymer similar to polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), which is even better than PTA polymer in certain performance indicators. Therefore, if 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid can become its substitute and produce bio-based plastics, it will have huge application prospects and market potential.

2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid can also be reacted with diols to prepare new polyesters. It can also be used to prepare medicines, insecticides, pesticides, fungicides and perfumes. In addition, studies have shown that 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid can also be used in pharmacological research, its diethyl ester has a similar anesthetic effect as cocaine, and calcium 2,5-furandicarboxylate can inhibit the growth of Bacillus megaterium.

2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid can be used for the production of polyamide materials. Polyamide is a kind of high-strength and durable polymer. This kind of polymer can be made into fibers for carpets, fabrics and sportswear; it can also be made into engineering plastics and used in the automotive industry, home products and electronics.

2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid can be used for the production of bio-based PEF materials. Compared with polyester PET, it has better gas barrier properties and mechanical strength. At the same time, PEF is made from biological renewable resources. Compared with PET, the production of PEF can reduce the use of non-renewable resources by about 40-50% and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 45-55%. Harmless environmentally friendly materials.
