Dehydrogenation of alcohols on technetium-modified oxides of rare-earth elements and yttrium
A study was made of the catalytic activity of the oxides of yttrium, praseodymium, neodymium, and ytterbium, modified by technetium, in the decomposition of isopropyl alcohol.
The addition of ∼0.06–0.02% of technetium lowers the temperature of the state of reaction, increases the reaction rate severalfold, and improves the selectivity of the process as regards dehydrogenation.
