A benzene compound is prepared by reacting a furan compound to produce an unsaturated bicyclic ether having an unsaturated carbon-carbon bond; hydrogenating the unsaturated carbon-carbon bond in the unsaturated bicyclic ether to produce a saturated bicyclic ether; and dehydrating and aromatizing the saturated bicyclic ether to produce the benzene compound.
