Title: A study to identify a feasible route for the production of the monomer 2-vinylfuran from furan by evaluating the effect of variables on the final yield and to recommend suitable conditions applicable to the chemical industry
Authors: Gengan, Robert Moonsamy 
Issue Date: 1992
Abstract: 
2- Vinylfuran has been synthesised from furan, obtained from furfural a degradation product of bagasse, and has the potential to be used as a monomer in the Polymer Industry. Furan was successfully reacted with ethylene under catalytic conditions of palladium (II) acetate and copper (II) acetate to produce 2-vinylfuran, via a direct substitution reaction, at atmospheric pressure and a temperature of 9Y C for two hours in dimethylformamide.
