Selective Conversion Of Ethanol To Acetic Acid On Inorganic Metal Oxide Catalysts At Low Temperatures

CTCN Keyword Matches:

Ethanol is receiving increasing attention as a fuel additive and feedstock in the chemical and energy industry because it can be obtained from renewable resources such as biomass. A one-stage oxidation of ethanol to acetic acid is an attractive alternative it two-stage processes for acetic acid production since it would lead to lower construction and operation costs. Existing one-stage methods have suffered from low selectivity and productivity.This invention provides a method for the selective oxidation of ethanol to acetic acid with high selectivity and productivity.


High selectivity and productivity at modest reactor temperature.
