    Abstract

    Many industrially important chemicals are currently produced using petroleum and natural gas as feedstocks, which are finite and nonrenewable. Organic acids compose a major class of renewable-resource feedstock chemicals. Condensed-phase catalytic hydrogenation of organic carboxylic acids as a route to alcohols was investigated as a possible pathway to novel, high-valued products. Organic acids bearing a different vicinal functional group, had varying reactivity in catalytic hydrogenation. Protonated alanine and lactic acid underwent aqueous-phase hydrogenation over a carbon-supported ruthenium catalyst ∼ 10 and 2-3 times as fast as their unsubstituted, propanoic acid.. The effects on organic acids' reactivity and selectivity toward hydrogenation were examined by comparing reduction rates over a wider range of electron-withdrawing, hydrogen-bonding, or sterically bulky vicinal substituents. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 227th ACS National Meeting (Anaheim, CA 3/28/2004-4/1/2004).
