Title
FeSBA-15-supported ruthenium catalyst for the selective hydrogenolysis of carboxylic acids to alcoholic chemicals
Abstract

•Ru/FeSBA-15 catalysts with different Fe and Ru contents are prepared.•Ru–Fe alloys and ionic Fe3+ species are co-existed in Ru/FeSBA-15 catalysts.•Ru/FeSBA-15 efficiently hydrogenolyzes carboxylic acids to alcoholic chemicals.•The catalytic performance depends on the contents of Ru and Fe.•Negligible deactivation of the catalyst occurs for over 330 h on stream.

Ordered mesoporous FeSBA-15-supported Ru catalysts are characterized by N2 adsorption–desorption isotherm, H2-temperature-programmed reduction, X-ray fluorescence, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy analyses. Results suggest the co-existence of Fe oxide species highly dispersed in the frameworks of SBA-15 and Ru–Fe bimetallic nanoparticles. The concentration of Fe species is low and in the form of Ru–Fe alloys located on the catalyst surfaces following reduction pretreatment in 5% H2–95% N2 flow at 623 K for 4 h. The as-reduced Ru/FeSBA-15 catalysts efficiently and selectively hydrogenolyze short-chain carboxylic acids (e.g., acetic acid, propionic acid, butyric acid, levulinic acid, and lactic acid) to their corresponding alcoholic chemicals. Results indicate that 2% Ru/FeSBA-15 catalyst with 1.07% Fe content yields the highest performance and excellent stability, yielding 92.5% conversion of acetic acid and 85.2% selectivity to ethanol under optimized conditions. The improved catalytic performance of the FeSBA-15-supported Ru catalyst is mainly attributed to the coherent interactions between Fe and Ru species, as well as to the high dispersion of Fe oxides in the SBA-15 framework.
