Deoxygenation of bio-oils on acidic zeolites is a potential method for upgrading bio-oils into energy-dense liquid fuels. One of the factors affecting the viability of zeolite-catalyzed dehydration/deoxygenation is minimization of coke formation. Here, cyclopentanone, a ketone commonly found in bio-oils, is utilized as a prototypical bio-oil ketone and its reactivity is evaluated over commercial H−Y zeolites with different acidities. 1H, 13C, and 27Al NMR studies of acidic H−Y zeolites… CONTINUE READING
