Title:
SINGLE-STEP CONVERSION OF N-BUTYRALDEHYDE TO 2-ETHYLHEXANAL
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/132192
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
Disclosed is a method of making and using a titania supported palladium catalyst for the single step synthesis of 2-ethylhexanal from a feed of n-butyraldehyde. This titania supported palladium catalyst demonstrates high n-butyraldehyde conversion but also produces 2-ethylhexanal in an appreciable yield with maintained activity between runs. This method provides a single step synthesis of 2-ethylhexanal from n-butyraldehyde with a catalyst that can be regenerated that provides cleaner downstream separations relative to the traditional caustic route.
