Abstract

Rhenium modified Pt/TiO2 catalyst has been tested during erythritol (ERY) hydrogenolysis reaction in a slurry reactor. N2 physisorption, temperature programmed reduction and CO chemisorption characterizations were performed. After reduction treatment, Pt species were fully reduced with a dispersion of 26% whereas Re species remained partially oxidized. ERY may convert through four pathways: isomerization, dehydration and C-O or C-C hydrogenolysis. Pt-Re/TiO2 was active and selective to butanetriols and butanediols formation. The influence of temperature (423–498 K) and reactant concentrations (15-35 barH2 and 0.2-0.6 MERY) on catalytic activity and products distribution were evaluated; the activation energy and the reaction orders for each route were estimated. Dehydration pathway displayed the highest activation energy whereas isomerization showed the lowest value. The order to ERY and H2 were 0.23 and 0.97 respectively, for C-O hydrogenolysis route and is consistent with two different mechanisms proposed for the removal of primary or secondary OH group.
