Catalytic conversion of cellulose to ethylene glycol over a low-cost binary catalyst of Raney Ni and tungstic acid.

Abstract

Following our previous report on the selective transformation of cellulose to ethylene glycol (EG) over a binary catalyst composed of tungstic acid and Ru/C, we herein report a new low-cost but more effective binary catalyst by using Raney nickel in place of Ru/C (Raney Ni+H(2 WO(4) ). In addition to tungstic acid, other W compounds were also investigated… (More)
