The renewable liquid fuel,2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF),which can be produced by the selective hydrogenation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) with high energy density,high boiling point,high octane number,and water insolubility,has attracted more attention all over the world.According to its excellent physicochemical properties,the momentous application values,and the broad market prospects,the various catalytic systems and the latest research progress for the selective hydrogenation of HMF into DMF from the point of the diversity of hydrogen donors such as molecular hydrogen,formic acid,alcohols,and water are systematically summarized. The future research trends are prospected to offer the valuable ideas and advices for the selective hydrogenation of HMF and provide the theoretical references and technical supports for the industrial production and practical application of DMF.
