Investigation of the hydrogenation of p-carboxybenzaldehyde in the presence of Pd-, Ru-, and Rh -catalysts
- 29 Downloads
The hydrogenation of p-carboxybenzaldehyde proceeds according to zero order with respect to the substrate and according to first order with respect to H2.
On Pd-catalysts, hydrogenation is accompanied by subsequent hydrogenolysis of the C-OH bond of the carbinol formed.
On a Rh-catalyst hydrogenolysis proceeds extremely slowly, while on a Ru-catalyst p-carboxy-benzyl alcohol is selectively formed.
