|Title:||Selective hydrogenation of dimethyl adipate on titania-supported RuSn catalysts|
|Abstract:||The hydrogenation of dimethyl adipate over RuSn/TiO(2) catalysts was studied to examine the effect of tin species and titania on selective production of 1,6-hexanediol. The bimetallic catalysts were prepared by co-impregnation and the reaction was carried out in a liquid phase semi-batch reactor at moderate conditions (255 degrees C and 50 bar). The optimal Sn/Ru ratio to reach maximum selectivity changed according to the catalyst reduction temperature. A remarkable selectivity of 70% of 1,6-hexanediol was accomplished over the catalyst with Sn/Ru ratio of 2 and reduced at 400 degrees C. The characterization of the bimetallic catalysts reduced at such a high temperature was performed by Mossbauer spectroscopy and it was found that all systems presented a similar distribution of tin species and no entity revealed to be preferentially formed. The establishment of strong-metal-support interaction and thus a synergistic effect between TiO(x) moieties and Sn(n+) species was Suggested to determine the reaction pathway. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V.
