Silica-supported alkaline earth oxides revealed excellent activity to convert acetic acid selectively into acetone in a vapor-phase fixed-bed flow system. Acetone was obtained through the cyclic formation of alkaline earth acetate followed by decomposition. Magnesium oxide should be supported on the silica surface without formation of magnesium silicate, which was inactive for the present reaction. Attempted syntheses of benzophenone and acetophenone are also described.
