Title
Hydrolytic hydro-conversion of cellulose to ethylene glycol over bimetallic CNTs-supported NiWB amorphous alloy catalyst
Abstract

•Catalytic conversion of cellulose into ethylene glycol with 57.7% yield on NiWB/CNTs•WO3 species are active mainly as solid acid for the hydrolysis of cellulose to glucose.•Strong acid sites and acid amounts are key factors.•Catalytic performance depends on the NiWB alloy well distributed over the CNTs surface.

NiWB/CNTs catalysts were prepared by ultrasonic impregnation chemical reduction method and showed high activity in the hydrolytic hydro-conversion of cellulose to ethylene glycol. The conversion of cellulose could be high to 100% with an ethylene glycol selectivity of 57.7%. The catalysts were characterized by XRD, TEM, NH3-TPD and XPS. The hydrolytic hydro-conversion activity of the catalyst was related to it's highly dispersion of NiWB, appropriate particle size and the synergistic effect between strong acid sites in CNTs and NiW alloying structure.
