Abstract

The selective hydrogenation of furfuryl alcohol was investigated at room temperature by using supported palladium catalysts. The catalysts are very selective to the formation of 2-methylfuran. Furthermore, the addition of tin to palladium showed similar catalytic activity, but was more selective to tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol. Variation of the Sn/Pd ratio has shown a considerable and interesting effect on the selectivity pattern. Addition of a small amount of Sn (1 wt %) shifted the selectivity towards tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol and methyltetrahydrofuran, which are ring-saturated molecules. Increasing the tin ratio further decreased the catalytic activity and also showed very poor selectivity to either of these products.
