As the renewable, widely distributed and green carbon-containing resource, the utilization of biomass, especially the preparation of high-value added oxygen-containing chemicals, has attracted increasing attention from researchers. At present, preparation of important oxygen-containing chemicals through hydrothermal catalysis from biomass is an important research field. In this paper, the progress in the preparation of polyols, 5-hydroxymethylfurfural(5-HMF) and lactic acid by hydrothermal catalytic hydrogenation, dehydration and hydrolysis of biomass was systematically reviewed. The catalytic mechanism and reaction pathways were analyzed in detail, and the research prospect of hydrothermal catalysis of biomass was prospected.

Key words: Biomass, Hydrothermal catalysis, Oxygen-containing chemical, Polyols, 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural(5-HMF), Lactic acid
