Vitaly L. Sushkevich, Prof. Irina I. Ivanova and Dr. Esben Taarning Mechanistic Study of Ethanol Dehydrogenation over Silica-Supported Silver ChemCatChem 5
Every mechanism should have a silver lining: Ethanol is selectively converted into acetaldehyde over Ag supported on silica. The Ag particles and SiOH groups of silica act in a complementary manner in a concerted mechanism, which is proposed based on in situ FTIR spectroscopic studies and kinetic experiments with specifically deuterated ethanol. The proposed mechanism shows the way for the design of efficient supported Ag catalysts.
