Chemocatalytic Conversion of Cellulosic Biomass to Methyl Glycolate, Ethylene Glycol, and Ethanol

One green pot: A new chemocatalytic conversion route from cellulosic biomass to methyl glycolate, ethylene glycol, and ethanol is developed. In the first step, methyl glycolate is produced up to a yield of 57.7 C % from the one-pot transformation of cellulose in methanol through catalysis of WOx and the assistance of O2; then, methyl glycolate is further hydrogenated in the second step to ethylene glycol and ethanol over a Cu/SiO2 catalyst.

    It′s all about the ratio: The focus of this work is to understand how the amount and strength of the acid/base sites influence the acrolein yield obtained by oxidative coupling of alcohols in the gas phase. The graphic shows the acrolein yield as a function of the basic/acidic sites ratio. A Mg/Si amphoteric catalyst with slightly dominant acidic character shows better catalytic performance than more basic catalysts.
