Aqueous-phase catalytic hydrogenation of organic acids and their mixtures

Abstract

Biomass-based organic acids are attractive feedstocks for chemicals production because they are available in quantity and can undergo a variety of reactions to form useful products. The Ru/C-catalyzed hydrogenation reactions of lactic acid and propionic acid in aqueous solution were performed in a laboratory-scale stirred batch reactor. Kinetic data were collected at 343-423 K, hydrogen pressure (3.4-10.3 MPa) and acid feed concentration (0.05-5 M). The adsorption and reduction of individual acids, acid mixtures, and combinations of acids with their alcohol products on fully reduced catalyst were studied. The acid conversion rates were not limited by mass-transport resistances over the reaction conditions studied. A Langmuir-Hinshelwood kinetic model was presented in which lactic acid and propionic acid compete for one type of surface catalytic site and hydrogen dissociatively adsorbs on a second type of site. The research provides insight into the catalytic reaction mechanism and forms the basis for further investigation of the organic acids hydrogenation. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
