Abstract

The activity and selectivity of platinum for the liquid-phase hydrogenation of cinnamaldehyde into cinnamyl alcohol are improved by adding FeCl2 to the reaction medium. Analytical microscopy shows that iron is deposited on Pt-particles. The reaction data are interpreted in terms of a dual-site mechanism.
