Bimetallic nanocatalysts for the conversion of muconic acid to adipic acid

Thomas, John Meurig, Raja, Robert, Johnson, Brian F.G., O'Connell, Tim J., Sankar, Gopinathan and Khimyak, Tetyana (2003) Bimetallic nanocatalysts for the conversion of muconic acid to adipic acid Chemical Communications, 10, (10), pp. 1126-1127. (doi:10.1039/b300203a).

Record type: Article


Adipic acid (2) production currently entails use and generation of environmentally harmful materials: an efficient catalyst, consisting of nanoparticles of Ru10Pt2 anchored within the pores of mesoporous silica, facilitates the production of (2) by hydrogenating muconic acid, that may be derived biocatalytically from D-glucose. Industrially desirable chemical products such as adipic acid may be produced in good yields and selectivities from plant-crop sources, using highly active bimetallic nanocatalysts anchored onto mesoporous silica.
