The synthesis of 2-actylfuran using from furan using acetic anhydride as an acylating agent via vapor phase catalysis has been reported. The influence of molar ratio, temperature and weight hour space velocity (WHSV) on yield of 2-actylfuran are investigated. The yield and selectivity of 2-actylfuran were observed to be 89.07% and 99.71%, respectively at temperature 573 K, WHSV 0.3 h−1 and molar ratio 1: 4 on Co2+/Ni2+/Cr+2 ionic distribution in the spinel lattice effects the acidic-basic properties. It was also observed that catalytic activity of ferrites was influenced by the acidity of catalyst.
