Abstract

Magnesium oxide was modified by addition of several metal oxides to prepare effective catalysts for vapor phase hydrogen transfer between methacrolein and ethanol to form methallyl alcohol and acetaldehyde. The catalytic performances vary with the acidic and basic properties of the catalyst. An effective catalyst was prepared by controlling the acidic and basic properties to be moderately weak by addition of SiO2 and K2O to magnesium oxide in proper amounts.
