A new strategy for the synthesis of jet fuel range branched alkanes with the xylose and methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) from lignocellulose was introduced. C10 and C11 branched alkanes with low freezing points were synthesized by three steps: 1) the dehydration of xylose to furfural over solid acid catalysts in MIBK/water biphasic solvent systems; 2) solid base catalyzed aldol condensation of furfural with MIBK which was also the most effective extracting solvent in first step; 3) solvent-free hydrodeoxygenation of aldol condensation product to jet fuel range branched alkanes over Ru/H-ZSM-5 catalyst. Alternatively, oxygenated fuel can also be obtained by the low temperature hydrogenation of aldol condensation product over Ru/C catalyst.
