Dr. Liang Wang, Dr. Bingsen Zhang, Dr. Xiangju Meng, Prof. Dang Sheng Su and Prof. Feng-Shou Xiao Hydrogenation of Biofuels with Formic Acid over a Palladium-Based Ternary Catalyst with Two Types of Active Sites ChemSusChem 7
Triple play: A ternary Pd/TiO2@NC catalyst is developed by supporting palladium nanoparticles onto a composite support of titania (TiO2) and nitrogen-modified porous carbon. The catalyst is able to fully hydrogenate vanillin, using formic acid, available from biomass, as hydrogen source. Its unique catalytic properties for hydrogenation are due to a synergistic effect between two different types of palladium sites in the catalyst: one for formic acid dehydrogenation and on for vanillin hydrogenation.
